Opening Day Of Finn Championships Delayed

May 14, 2019

The sailors at the 2019 Finn Open European Championship in Athens — including Bermuda’s Rockal Evans — will have to wait another day before racing can commence after a long day waiting onshore Monday, with no racing possible in very light and unstable winds.

The fleet of 84 boats from 33 nations spent the day wishing for wind, but with several rain fronts passing over and often no more then 3-4 knots of wind, racing was eventually abandoned for the day shortly before 16.00.

On Tuesday, the morning conditions are expected to be similar, so racing has been put back to 13.30 with three races scheduled.
