Day 1: One race and No wind!
With a weather forecast predicting breeze at 16-18 knots of wind and gusts in the high 20’s, it was quite another scenario that unfolded at Fushan Bay today.
As skipper Jes Gram-Hansen summed up in three words: “Shifty, light. and tricky”.
It was one of those days where tactics were more like throwing dice. Despite SAP Extreme Sailing Team’s strong start, leading the pack early, things changed uncontrollably and crossed the finish line as the last cat. The sea breeze had evaporated,and racing was abandoned for the day 1 in Act 2. Not exactly what one could have hoped for, but such is life at sea.
Early leader is Land Rover BAR Academy and results can be found here…
