Yesterday should have seen the start of the finals but the wind was lazy - the threatening clouds on the mountains didn't let it blow. When a light wind settled the bronze fleet was sent to the course. Just as they were about to start the wind dropped completely and they came ashore with the rain. The sailors spent their day playing football, reading or relaxing at the café.
The Gold fleet will start on Friday morning at 8.30, (local time) the silver fleet at 13.30 and the bronze fleet at 15.30. Christoffer SUNDBY from the Norwegian team leads going into the finals. He said: "If the fleet manages to wake up, it will be a good days racing. There's a nice northerly breeze here in the morning but I hope we won't race at that time…I am not really able to think before 10 in the morning!"
