After a remarkable opening day at the opening day of the 470 Europeans, organised by local Yacht Club Sanremo and Marina degli Aregai, in co-operation with the national and international 470 class, wind was not on the organisers’ and sailors’ side on Day 2.
Despite a long wait, onshore and offshore, a decent breeze did not materialise and therefore the Race Committee decided to abandon racing for the day.
