Today's Americas Cup Challenger Races Cancelled

Today's Racing Cancelled

Race Director Vince Cooke has cancelled all racing today due to wind conditions. This morning showed a 25 knot - gusting 35 - northerly on the scale.

'The Challengers are not racing..' said Cooke at his 0630 call-up. 'Th amount of wind in which they will race is defined in the Notice of Race.'

Cooke is referring to the weather limitations which states that no racing will be held in winds over 18 knots.

Racing continues tomorrow but only one race is scheduled due to a clash with a coastal sailing event. The pairings for Friday will be those for Race Seven (i.e. those of today). Start gun will be 13:20.
