Walter BODDENOR, Principal Race Officer, explained the situation, "Today's wind conditions clearly exceeded the limits for racing and it was simply too dangerous to send the sailors out. Tomorrow the forecast is for light and shifty conditions so we will aim to complete the two races scheduled.

The first of tomorrow's races are scheduled to get underway at 12:00 local time (15:00 UTC).
