We are into day seven of the schedule and so far only one days racing has been completed.
Today, Sunday, racing has started. Breeze out on the two courses is showing between 6 knots plus at 14:15 local time.
The official ACM forecast calls for conditions on the margin of being ‘raceable’.
There is a light four to six knot gradient wind. If the sea breeze can get established breeze may build to 6-8 knots later in the afternoon and veer easterly.
High cloud forecast inland but brighter spells along the coast, dry, temperature 21 degrees.
In accordance with the changes agreed between the Challenger Commission and the Regatta Director, Sunday will see Flights 3 and 4 attempted again, with the highlight match coming in Flight 4 between the home team Desafío Español and the surging Mascalzone Latino – Capitalia Team.
Also Emirates Team NZL will be out to prove that the loss to Mascalzone Latino was a blip when they take-on +39 Challenge who have stepped their repaired mast. Race Schedule for Sunday 22 April 2007:
