Race 8 Start Postponed

In the last minute of the start sequence for race 8 the wind went right and the race committee was forced to AP the start with seconds to go. They are moving the line and watching the breeze which had gone back north and dropped to 4 knots. Rob Lamb and the RYS Racing team are doing everything they can to get this race underway but the weather goods are not cooperating.

Waiting for Wind

Having arrived in the race area in a sailable 7 knots the wind has now dropped to sub 4 knots in the Solent and so far no racing has been possible on the final day of the Coutts Quarter Ton Cup 2016. As you can see from our photo the boats are only just making way over the tide. To make things worse its started to rain. The race committee is constantly monitoring the wind but with a final start cut off time of 14.30 its not looking promising.
