What a change! The sunshine continued through the afternoon, with shifty westerley winds. But this evening the wind dropped away, until all the boats just stopped as the wind completely disappeared. The boats and positions remained “frozen” until 10 minutes ago, when slight puffs on wind started, and boats have begun to move very slowly forwards!
At 9pm tonight the positions on the scoreboard were updated and showed Buworth A team in 9th, B team 27th, and C team slipping to 37th after unfortunately picking up a port-starboard penalty.
The wind is stll expected to be strong tommorrow morning, building up to the race finish at midday.
