Using every opportunity they can get to practice in light air before the Olympic Games, the fleet headed out to the Alpha Course between the islands of Ciovo and Solta. The RC mobilized, but the wind never filled and the boats returned to shore.
After having plenty of time to eat lunch and check emails in the comfort of Y.C. Labud, the fleet headed back out. This time they sailed south to the Bravo Course between the mainland and Brac, the largest island in Central Dalmatia. The scenery was equally as spectacular as on the Alpha course and the southwesterly proved equally as fickle and illusive. Tows were organized and the crews were back on the docks by 17:45.
"You can't say that we're not trying," said Srdjan CICARELLI, a volunteer and one of two local sailors who was a member of the +39 America's Cup team along with former Star World Champion and Finn Olympic Gold medallist, Iain PERCY, and crew, Andrew SIMPSON (GBR).
