Yesterday it was blowing Dogs off Chains in AC72 land, with a limit of 20.1 knots with a strong ebbing tide, it hot 24 knots and was blown off. But today looked to be a different story.
Regatta Director Iain Murray expressed confidence at his morning briefing that the conditions would be suitable for racing today, despite another day of strong ebb (outgoing) tide.
'Our intel tells us around 15 knots for first race and 16-17, maybe 18 for the second race,' said Murray. 'Once again, a strong ebb tide today increasing as day goes on: -2 for the first race so a 21-knot limit, and -3 for the second race, so a 20-knot limit. Once again we have a convergence of wind and current, but the forecast looks ok and we feel confident.' But it was not to be.
Today was an important day for both teams. Oracle Team USA needed to win to extend the series.
Also we have races 8,7,6, 5,4, 3, 2 and 1 replays
