No ALT tag specified

Louis Vuitton Cup 2007
Valencia, Spain

Following a series of delays earlier in the competition due to too little wind, on Tuesday, May arrived with a roar, as 20 to 25 knot westerly winds buffeted Valencia. With the breeze blowing from the shore to the sea, the water was relatively flat at race time, but with gusts approaching 30 knots, the Race Committee hoisted the AP flag, signalling a postponement.

The wind never eased and over the course of the afternoon a swell of over one metre developed. Racing was postponed for the day at 16:00 on both race areas. Flights 3 and 4 are now on the schedule for Wednesday afternoon.
