Day 3 of competition at the Hempel World Cup Miami, USA.
Light winds again, and racing getting underway in a Southerly, 6 to 8 knot breeze, so let’s see how many races they manage today.
The lack of a decent breeze has hobbled the Miami Olympic classes event, but the clock keeps ticking and with the medal races set for Sat and Sun the options are reducing.
The World Cup programme is based on the Olympic model of a qualifying series to determine the top ten in each event, and then a medal race to decide the podium places.
As we are at day 3, that is the penultimate day’s racing for the classes with their medal races on Saturday. The RS:X, Nacra 17, 49er and 49erFX.
The Laser fleet has now split into gold and silver fleets.
WInd has increased to Easterly 11 to 13 knots.
