International OK Dinghy National Championships day 2

International OK Dinghy National Championships 2011 at Largs - Day 2
International OK Dinghy National Championships 2011 are being held at Largs Sailing Club in Largs, Scotland between 19th and 21st July. Day two promised much but in the end failed to deliver.

The fleet launched on time in an Easterly breeze of up to 23 knots which resulted in an exciting full on reach out to the Race Area but unfortunately by the time the fleet arrived there a Northerly wind began to fight the Easterly resulting in very confused conditions. After an hour of waiting, extreme wind shifts and a failing wind made it impossible for the Race Committee to set a fair course.

The Race Officer relocated to the Largs Channel as conditions appeared to be much better in the reserve Race Area, however the awkward weather followed the fleet and extreme wind shifts of up to 120 degrees again forced the Race Committee to delay starting any races. After another postponement it became obvious that racing was impossible so the Race Committee sent the fleet ashore to wait for the wind to stabilise. Unfortunately the wind then faded to below three knots and all racing was postponed for the day. Hopefully better conditions will arise on Thursday which is the last day of the 2011 OK Nationals. The prize giving will be followed by a barbecue and no doubt a few beers.
