Another Windless Day
No ALT tag specified

Louis Vuitton Cup 2007
Valencia, Spain

On the first scheduled weekend of racing at the Louis Vuitton Cup a large spectator fleet assembled on a sunny and warm Saturday to watch the action, but once again the wind did not cooperate, and there was no racing. It is the fifth day to have racing postponed due to a lack of wind.

The challengers have agreed to amend the racing schedule to allow for the disruption caused by the postponements. Each of the Round Robin One flights will now be conducted in order and Round Robin One will be completed before Round Robin Two begins.

Fortunately, the forecast for Sunday is more promising. A stronger easterly gradient wind should allow racing in Flights 3 and 4, on what is forecast to be a mainly clear Sunday.
