ISAF Worlds, Cascais - RSX windsurfing - too much wind!

Strong winds meant racing was cancelled for all classes.

“It has blown an absolute hooley all day long in Cascais, with fierce winds causing the abandonment of every scheduled race,” reports ISAF.

“The forecast did predict strong winds, but not the 35 knot blasts that swept across Cascais bay, climbing well over 40 knots on the outer race courses. Just after 19:00 the breeze did drop slightly to just under 20 knots and the Stars went out to sail their Medal Race, but the conditions worsened again and the fleet was sent back to shore.”

The RS:X Men and RS:X Women will also resume racing with two more days of qualifying before their medal races. Both Barbara Kendall and Jon-Paul Tobin are currently placed within the top seven.
