W6 (II) on 13 December will go ahead

The event will go ahead.

Unfortunately the windy conditions continue. The forecast from 3.30pm is as follows: Northwest rising to 30 knots gusting 40 knots in the morning, easing to 25 knots gusting 35 knots in the evening. Cloudy periods, with some afternoon showers. 19 degrees.

This means effectively that the weather will be similar to today. However, due to the northwesterly winds, the race course is reasonably protected (apart from the area around the 500m startline) and the wind chop build up is somewhat limited. Thus, teams will likely find that the wind rather than waves are the main problem.

The committee has therefore decided to go ahead.
