The first day of racing here proved to be a difficult one, after skippersmeeting at 10:00 the fleetw as supposed to head out to the course area at 12:00 for the first start, when a heavy rainsquall hit the course area and the start had to be postponed. Even with marks as high as 2.5 meters it would have been impossible to see them, even from nearby.
