2016/17 AY Grand Prix Event

Racing days 2, no racing 1...

12:01:2017 Langkawi, Malaysia: Ever since the low pressure system, crossed the coast North of Langkawi on Sunday night, it has left a vacuum in its trail, leaving regatta participants hoping there'll be wind, despite the dismal weather forecasts. For the first 2 days, racing was possible in 4 to 7 knots, but today it failed to arrive, in any strength or direction. Wisely the postponement flag was displayed onshore and the crews had a lengthy breakfast, that turned into lunch and resisted temptation for a cold brew. Listening to the VHF radio, as PRO Simon James received wind readings from the mark boats, scattered around the racing area, was disheartening for the keen racers. At 1330 as we fast approached the 1400 cut off time, the decision was finally made to cancel today's racing. Then came the rush to the bar for a fistful of drinks.

It doesn't look any better for the rest of the week, but sailors are a very resilient lot and will go through the same motions as today, until the end of the regatta on Saturday. Hopefully we can increase the racing days and keep the no racing days to a minimum.
