An overcast start was slow to clear, but, as forecast, patches of blue sky started to appear. The wind was a little more reluctant, and racing was postponed until 1330 hrs at the earliest, at which stage a sea breeze seemed to be taking over from the forecast NNW direction, racing was planned for 1415.
Whilst setting the course, the wind filled back in from NNW, the start sequence was underway, only for the sea breeze to return! A postponement was raised, the line moved, and racing was started again. Fortunately, the general SW direction held, and remained for the duration of the race, which was to be the only one of the day.
The prize giving was postponed in favour of the women’s Euro final.
