Lack of breeze sees no racing on day two of MedCup sailing regatta

6:30 am on 16 May 2009

The breeze, or lack of it, has forced the abandonment of the second day's racing in the MedCup sailing regatta in Spain.

The fleet did come under starter's orders but the breeze collapsed and after waiting for a couple of hours, Team New Zealand and the rest of the 12-strong fleet returned to their Alicante base.

Team New Zealand was third in the only one of three scheduled races on the opening day.
