Sailors and race committee arrived in Puerto Cancun in the morning, with first possible warning signal scheduled for 10:00. Great conditions with a 20 kts onshore wind kept expectations high.
The course was set right in front of the club, so other sailors could clearly see both the start and finish of races. Those that finished racing could come back ashore, check their equipment or get some rest. You could tell that everyone was enjoying the day. [more]
Unfortunately only RS:X sailors had this chance as, soon after their second race, the fairytale ended. The wind dropped, rain came in. And a tropical storm, which had just formed, was announced to be heading in the direction of the venue.
The decision was to end racing for the day and to secure equipment in the available buildings.
Hopefully all will clear for tomorrow and we can start the day off with more exciting racing.
