Two Days On Shore Due to Unsafe Conditions

After run of great weather including for the Practice Race and Race Days 1 & 2 Huey has turned on a nasty spell (5 & 6 January) of wet and excessively windy days so no safe, fair racing has been possible.

 

The women are dominating the ILCA 6s holding the top six places. With no racing on the third scheduled day of racing the ILCA 6 qualifying series is concluded and a drop is included to determine the split into the Gold and Silver fleets for the Final Series. Results for the Qualifying Series are Here.

 

There is just one point between the top four so it is all in play for once the weather allows the Final Series to proceed.

 

In the ILCA 7s team GBR has four of the top six places however Olympic Champion Matt Wearn is three points clear at the top. Racing has been very close and the series is still wide open. Results to Race 4 in the ILCA 7s are Here.

 

In the 55 boat ILCA 4 fleet Team Victoria of Aidan Simmons, Angus McIntyre and Riley Cantwell is dominating taking pretty much all the podium places in each race. Full results are Here.

 

PRO Peter Merritt has set up for a 12:30 warning for ILCA 4s and 13:00 for ILCA 6 & 7s for Saturday 7 January. Conditions are predicted to be marginally better on Saturday with a little less wind and much less rain – here’s hoping.
