Sail-World.com : RS:X Worlds blasted by 40 knots
RS:X Worlds blasted by 40 knots

'2012 RS:X World Windsurfing Championships'    Vincenzo Baglione

At the RS:X World Windsurfing Championships in Cadiz, the morning time had the Bay covered in white caps. The AP wentup. Racing was postponed in the hope that the wind would moderate. It topped out at 40 knots plus mid morning and stayed there until 1500hrs.Up went the AP over A. No racing.

The Race Director, Rob Lamb had a well thought through plan of action in the event that he decided that racing would be possible. And that was to call out one group at a time and race them on a windward/leeward course. That way he could provide the necessary safety cover with the help of the coach boats.

To do this and get four starts required four hours of daylight. Cut off time was therefore 1500hrs.

Instantly the decision had been made. The wind began to moderate. Such is life.How many times have you been at a regatta and experienced the same thing?

Mind you, the time ashore has not been wasted. The coaches have had a meeting to discuss the big questions facing the class so that delegates are well prepared for the 2012 RS:X Annual General Meeting tomorrow.

Tomorrow was scheduled to be a rest day if and only if a minimum of four races had been run. It will now be used to do one race in each fleet so that, hopefully, we can start the finals on Sunday on schedule...
