Louis Vuitton Cup 2007
Valencia, Spain

Flight 5 of Round Robin Two of the Louis Vuitton Cup was postponed for the day on Thursday in Valencia, the Race Committee sending the fleet home at 16:15. Conditions were nearly impossible for racing, with a series of thunder cells rolling up from the south, bringing rain, hail, thunder and lightning to Valencia and the waters around Port America's Cup.

In between thunderstorms, a light gradient breeze from the south at near 8 knots appeared, but there was never enough time between storms to set a race course.

A double flight will be scheduled tomorrow, with Flight 5 followed by Flight 6.
