Day #2 Morning Report – How to Follow the Hempel World Cup Series Miami

In the lead up to Hempel World Cup Series Miami, many of the 665 sailors from 60 nations had spent considerable time in Miami, training and preparing for the competition.

The competitors aimed to apply their training to the competition so the first day saw some close racing in light airs and blue skies.

As the saying goes, you can’t win the event on the opening day but you can lose it, and many of the pre-event favourites but in steady performances that will hold them in good stead as the week progresses.

Racing is scheduled to start at 10:30 local time as the Race Committee aim to catch up on races lost. The forecast is for light breeze once again. It is predicted to come from a northerly direction and remain from this direction as the day goes in. A 5-10 knot breeze is predicted with the best of the breeze on the eastern side of the field of play.

Some showers are forecast later on in the day and could impact the breeze.
