AUDI Medcup - Cartagena Trophy - Day 2: No racing due to lack of wind
It's been a disappointing day in Cartagena as the most pessimistic weather forecasts became a reality. After holding the fleet ashore for almost two hours, the race committee tried to find, unfortunately in vain, a spot with some decent breeze in order to set a race course. The breeze never passed the 4-knot barrier and as a result they called off racing for the day.
Tomorrow Friday, the GP42's will try to hold their first races while the TP52's will drop their scheduled coastal race for more windward-leeward races. Unfortunately, that might not be an easy task as a heatwave originating from northern Africa is affecting Spain. In fact today was the hottest day of the year so far and it won't get any cooler before next week.
