Finals start in earnest
Following completion of the qualifiers, determination of the Gold and Silver fleets and the lay day, the boats and Race Committee are out preparing for the first race of the Final Series. With the Bura gone and a new wind, from the South, today (drawn by the low pressure north of us), there will be different conditions from the qualifying series. The wind speed was around 10 knots at the time of launch, but all will depend upon whether the heat this afternoon overcomes the southerly wind, or if a westerly from over the islands comes in to conflict with it. We hope that the south wind will prevail!
