For the International 505 and Flying Dutchman Championships the cancellation of racing comes on the second day of their events.

After a tough opening day on Hayling Bay Thursday, more 20+ winds early Friday accompanied by heavy showers, made cancellation the right decision. (winds were hitting 25 to 30 knots by early afternoon)

Racing for the 505 and FD championships will resume Saturday, weather conditions permitting.
