Régates Royales at Yacht Club Cannes - Day 2

by Alexander Panzeri 23 Sep 2020 05:28 PDT 21-26 September 2020

Not so much to say except that we were happy to be on shore as a big storm with heavy rain hit the bay till mid afternoon, when the races were cancelled at 12:00UTC.

I'm really thankful to the ladies of the Poliform by BKa shop in Cannes; they welcomed me and warmed me with a huge cup of tea after I'd been surprised by the heavy shower on the way back to the yacht club.

Considering the situation and days running away I can see how stormy things are for the organization team (now Italy has imposed restrictions on coming back home).
