Moth Worlds - False Start

Lake Garda put on a fine display of summer thunderstorms that caused havoc with the regular breezes and wiped out any chance of starting the McDougall + McConaghy Moth Worlds.

One fleet did get into a start sequence but a big shift minutes before the start put and end to any chance of racing.

Then a huge black thunder cloud loomed over the horizon from Riva del Garda shutting down the breeze and sending some impressive lightning displays over the lake.

Race Management had no choice but to ere on the side of caution and send the fleet home for safety reasons.

Once the storms had cleared the skies cleared, the sun came out for a glorious evening but alas the breeze had shut down for the day.

The revised schedule for the Qualifying Series on Wednesday 26 July is for an early start for two groups (Red and Yellow) of 8.25am (local time).

Blue and Green groups will not start before 10.00hrs (local time).
