No Race... No Comment...

As by title, I decided to go on Day4 to shoot the EU Championship of the Melges 24 Class in Rive del Garda because forecast were better than day 3.

The day started good, sunny warm and breeze, Yes the southerly wind “ORA” was set on time.

But, some stormy clouds, has decided to visit Riva, and without rain over the lake, the day was always sunny, they completely change the wind from South to West, with peaks to 30[kts].

Really a shame that the wind shear has destroyed all expectations. So the R.C. has canceled the races for today (Day 4).

Now we have to (at least me) wake up very early and drive to Riva in the morning because the race start has been anticipated at 11:00L (09:00UTC).

We all hopes that at least the nightly storm that is shaking Bergamo will normalize the weather and we can close the event with a great race before the Prize Giving.

General Standing: 7 races
