K6 EuroCup at Fraglia Vela Riva, Lake Garda, Italy - Day 2

by Heather Chipperfield 28 Jun 2017 03:35 PDT 26-30 June 2017

Day 1

The K6 Eurocup started in great style on Monday 26 June at Fraglia vela Riva, Lake Garda, with bright sunshine and a warm Ora wind.

Neil Fulcher and Dave Hall showed us all their heels, but there are still 10 races to go in this 5 day regatta...

The fleet and their families are certainly making the most of the wonderful town of Riva del Garda.

Day 2

A difficult day for competitors on Lake Garda.

Overcast sky and rain precluded the famous Ora wind developing on the lake. After some delay the Race Officer started the two fleets well down lake on the light northerly breeze but after just one round it was abandoned for both classes.

A new start area was established but the light breeze never settled or strengthened and the fleet were eventually all towed back to the harbour.

Another difficult day for the PRO is expected today (Wednesday) with rain and thunder forecast.
