Transatlantic Challenge Delayed

[ 03 / 05 / 2005 ]
The start of the 2005 Rolex Transatlantic Challenge has been delayed due to a severe depression that will be centred off Cape Cod tomorrow which could potentially see headwinds gusting up to 50 knots. Race committee have been left with no option but to delay the start which has now been provisionally set for 2:00pm EDT Sunday may 22nd.

David Tunick, Chair of the Technical & Compliance Subcommittee for the Rolex Transatlantic Challenge gave the following statement during the Captains Briefing held at the New York Yacht Club on Saturday Evening.

"We looked at the weather all week. We not only monitored the National Weather Service ourselves, but we also took advice from two professional weather services. Their advice, coming to us independently this morning, was to postpone the start.


The reason is that there were two lows out there that looked as if they might be merging - a double whammy. With the history of the Sydney-Hobart and the Fastnet, they considered it highly irresponsible of the New York Yacht Club to send off the race tomorrow."

Tunick added that many of the top skippers taking part in the Rolex Transatlantic Challenge had spoken to him during the day, also urging him to postpone the start. "I was pleased to hear that advice, and it was on that advice that the decision was taken."

The proposed start for Sunday looks promising and race officials will be monitoring the situation over the next few hours.
