Thunderstorms all day …
We are compelled to upset everyone who follows the events at the world championship in the Laser Standard class, which takes place in Melbourne: there were no races today.
From early morning until the afternoon, thunderstorms thundered over the regatta. In this regard, at three o'clock in the afternoon, local time, Racing Director Peter Merritt decided to cancel the competition on Friday.
The race committee intends to hold three (rather than two) races on Saturday and Sunday, which will fully implement the program of the World Cup.
Recall that after six qualifying races (with one throw), the German Philip Boule leads – 6 points.
Our Maxim Nikolaev and Sergey Komissarov occupy 17th and 18th places in the Golden Fleet.
Detailed Qualification Race Results –
P.S. I had to cancel the race in the city of Geelong (it is not far from Melbourne), where the world championships in the Olympic classes 49er, 49erFX and Nacra17 take place.
