Bureau Vallée Dream Cup
Despite a slightly improved overnight forecast for day two of the 2019 Bureau Vallée Dream Cup - the contest remained on hold for the second consecutive day with the wind remaining light throughout.
During the afternoon there were a few gusts of around 9 knots, but the wind never really threatened to kick in with the wind being too southerly for the local effect.
The forecast for Wednesday is better than today with the wind expected to swing from the southeast to the east-southeast during the afternoon and into the early evening, which should hopefully allow the racing to get underway. Meanwhile, the forecast for the remainder of the event looks solid with the trade winds expected to properly fill in.
During the afternoon an autograph session was held before the competitors were soon released at 4pm. The sailors will meet again at 10am on Wednesday morning with the racing commencing from 11am (GMT+11) onwards.
