...and too much in Weymouth
It’s ironic that while the 2008 Olympic sailing site in Qingdao, China, is
reportedly plagued by light winds the site of the Moth Worlds and the 2012
Games in Weymouth has too much.
Yesterday was the third day of the championships, and for the 99 entries
from 18 countries, the plan was to have now finished three days of
qualifying races. Wednesday was supposed to be a layday, with Thursday and
Friday set aside for the finale. However, this schedule has long been
forgotten, as Tuesday was the third consecutive day of excessive of winds
that have kept the fleet ashore.
The race committee is hopeful for Thursday and Friday’s weather, but the
number of races for the championship is rapidly diminishing.
