Silver Fleet waiting for a start

DN (Ice Sailing) World Championships
Haapsalu

Yesterday clear blue skies again and a temperature of -4C but this time sadly wind-less to begin with and the first race was scheduled for 1pm.
The Bronze fleet sailed then on the second start line, moved about half a mile south of the original one due to a big wind shift, but after one lap when the leading boats took 2 minutes longer to get round than the minimum lap time the race was called off.

A sad development for the British team because the leading boat at both windward and leeward marks was GBR10 Neil Marsden. A lengthy wait and yet another start line move followed, with hopes for better wind, but this never materialised and all sailing was abandoned for the day at 16:15h. Fingers crossed for better luck tomorrow.

At the end of yesterday's racing the customary dinner was held and just about all the competitors and their supporters (places booked for 200) enjoyed three good courses.

Racing will continue on Friday and Saturday.
