Finally a breeze appeared from the northwest and a course was set. But as the sailors checked the shifts and prepared for the race an enormous thunderstorm approached and with winds reaching 25 knots and torrential rain, racing was postponed and the sailors were sent home, only to find no wind inside the fjord and most had to be towed the few miles back to the sailing centre.
However it was not over yet. On arrival at the shore, the postponement was still up and a further wait of an hour ensued until the PRO finally admitted defeat and abandoned for the day.
Tomorrow is the final scheduled day and it is technically possible to run three races, so the final result is by no means certain and by tomorrow night there will be a new OK Dinghy World Champion.
