America's Cup Match 2007
Valencia, Spain

Light, unstable winds forced the Race Committee to postpone racing for the day on Sunday at the 32nd America's Cup Match. The Defender, Alinghi was looking to win its fourth match in a row, to successfully defend the America's Cup. Emirates Team New Zealand, the challenger, was in a 'must win' position.
But the wind gods did not cooperate. High cloud started to form near noon, inhibiting the development of a sea breeze. Whenever a clear patch opened up over the land, the wind would pick up, only to ease when the cloud returned. And it was always very shifty today, both in pressure and direction.

At 16:10, Principal Race Officer Peter REGGIO signalled there would be no racing for the day. Monday is a scheduled 'off day' at the America's Cup, so racing won't resume until Tuesday afternoon, when the forecast is for a strong, steady, 15 knot sea breeze.
