RYA Youth Nationals foiled again

Day two racing at the 2018 RYA Youth National Championships was yet again foiled by the extreme weather conditions in Largs, Scotland.

There were high hopes of racing among the 227 sailors and event organisers with forecasts showing a windy and gusty morning in Largs which was to die down to sailable conditions that would have allowed for a first taste of 2018 Youth Nationals action.

Unfortunately the prediction never materialised and the weather proved too much to send any sailors afloat. For the second day in a row the race committee had no choice but to put safety first.

The forecasts for day three look promising and the possibility of an earlier start is likely for the Youth National competitors.
