Lack Of Wind At Kieler Woche
The wind disrupted racing at Kieler Woche again on the third day of the ISAF Sailing World Cup.
Only the 49er, 2.4 mR and the Womens Match Racing competition could finish races today. "We tried to get all classes on the water today but every time we thought we could start the wind dropped again," Jobst Richter, Chairman of Kieler Woche explained.
And the forecast for tomorrow, Tuesday 22 June, promises not much more wind. In this case Jobst Richter and his team may take the decision to cancel the races for the 2.4 mR, who have completed nine races in Kiel, to use this course, which is close to the shore and shows promise of a chance to sail fair races for the other classes.
