TP52's racing in Barcelona kept on ice in hot, very light winds

[Source: AUDI Medcup] There was no racing for the TP52 Series fleet today due to winds which were too light.

The 11 strong TP52 Series fleet representing 10 different nations, were left waiting, poised and ready for their first ever points racing off Barcelona, but the light breezes proved insufficient to get competition under way.

Around five hours in the hot summer Mediterranean sunshine, tracking the fickle breeze proved to be in vain for the TP52 teams who watched closely to see what they could learn from their smaller GP42 cousins as they took part in a slow, shifty practice race.

Three races are scheduled for the both the TP52 Series fleet and the GP42 Series fleet tomorrow (Thursday) with this evening’s forecast seeming to offer the prospect of a racing breeze.

Yesterday's teams racing yesterday's boats. Why don't they all just get their shit on over to the RC44 Class where all the real action is?
