ISAF Sailing World Championships 2007
Cascais, Portugal

It was an early start in Cascais today, with the first 49er races scheduled for 10:00 as the race committee aimed to get back on schedule. It's an important day in the Finn fleet with the gold fleet to be decided, whilst the 470s are the last class to get their series underway.

Yesterday the weather presented a myriad of problems for the race committee as the breeze waxed and waned, picking up on one course, switching to another, with some major wind variations even between the inner and outer loops of some of the trapezoid courses.

As a result only one Finn race was sailed, reducing their opening series to nine races. After being blown off the course with the wind gusting well over 20 knots, the 49ers missed out on a number of their scheduled races, hence the early start today.

The 470 fleets begin their series out on the windy race area 4, with the men's yellow, blue and red fleets starting first, before the two women's fleets race later in the afternoon.

On race area 3 the Star gold fleet line up for the first two of the remaining four races of their opening series.
