Shifting breeze rules the day again

10:26 am on 17 September 2009

The second day of the Audi MedCup series regatta at Cartagena in Spain has again been abandoned due to shifting breezes.

With two days and six races lost, the race committee has reorganised the schedule of the last regatta of the MedCup series to get in as many races as possible before the it winds up on Saturday.

Three windward-leeward courses will be held overnight rather than the planned coastal race and if the breeze settles down as most forecasters predict, nine windward-leeward races could be held on the remaining three days of competition.

The good news is the forecast is predicting 15-20 knots of more settled breeze.
