No racing again in Ostend, final chance tomorrow!!

With 2.2m waves that very nearly capsized the RIB that was sent out to check the sea conditions and wind strength at 2.00pm, it was measured at 25-28kts, gusting 30kts at times, so the PRO once again had to cancell sailing for a third day here in Ostende………

The only chance for this very frustrated 69 boat fleet to complete the Gold Cup series, is for two races tomorrow…  So with a briefing at 07.30 and a warning signal of 10.00, the PRO Henry Antoine hopes to salvage the regatta..  Two races are planned and all we can do is hope for the best…  Realistically, now that 2 races have been lost, the overall winner can only come from the 4 leading boats…  DEN 401, RUS 27, GBR 744 and GER 10….  Of course with the format of NO DISCARD’S, anything is possible, but my money is on one of these four teams..Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope for a mouth watering final day…..

Higher, Faster, Longer…..   Stavros.    (USA 310).
