AUDI MedCup - Alicante Trophy: Day 3 - Preview

Update 11am local time: The postponement flag is down and the fleet is getting ready to dock out.

Update 10am local time: Racing has been postponed and the fleet remains ashore.

Good morning from, finally, sunny Alicante. The day has dawned with sunny and blue skies over the city, giving some hope that today's forecast for breezier conditions will turn out to be accurate.

With only 1 of the 6 scheduled races for the TP52 sailed in two days, the race committee is under pressure and as a result, today's scheduled coastal race will be replaced by, hopefully, three windward-leeward races. The start has also been moved one hour earlier and the 13 TP52 yachts will hit the start line at noon.

Today we feature a video from Quantum Racing where designer Marcelino Botín and Terry Hutchinson talk about TP52 boat design.
