Moth World Championship
Melbourne, Australia

Racing yesterday at the Moth World Championships at Sail Melbourne was postponed by the host club, Black Rock Yacht Club today, as strong winds, regularly gusting in excess of 28 knots swept their course on Port Phillip Bay.
Storms also featured largely in their decision, as the conditions changed and worsened throughout the day. At times the sun peeped through the clouds and the wind abated to around 20 knots, but not for long.

Black Rock organisers held the 47-strong Moth fleet ashore until 16.00 hours, finally having no choice but to postpone racing until Thursday.

Today, Wednesday is a lay day for the fleet.

Local sailor Rohan Veal (AUS) leads the Championship after three races, with three wins, with two serious British contenders, Simon Payne and Adam May in second and third places respectively and not to be discounted.
