After an hours postponement due to the 20+ winds in the Bay, a decision was made to cancel the three scheduled races for Firday.

With a building wind forecast, wind over tide, 45 knots of breeze at St Catherine’s Point and 58 knots off Portland Bill, the competitors briefly considered the option to race inside Chichester Harbour but unanimously agreed not to race today and aim to sail four races Friday.

After a brief protest hearing this morning, Legs Eleven (11 – Paul Fisk, Martin Grady, Pippa Jubb) has been awarded redress in the form of average points for races 2 and 3 to be calculated from the results for Races 1, 4 & 5.

The event needs a minimum of four races to complete a championship series.

Racing will resume on Saturday with four races scheduled to complete the championship.

Defending champions Mike McIntyre, Caroline McIntyre and Simon Childs, are leading the event after winning the first three races on Thursday.
