has been postponed on a day which will see the “Big
Boats” go head to head in preparation for the
Fastnet Race on August 7th. ICAP Maximus and Skandia
Wild Thing were scheduled to compete in the Open 60
Round The Island Race but due to light wind conditions
the fleet have to deal with on day 6 of Cowes Week the
event has been changed to an out-and-back race to Poole
Bar, with a committee vessel accompanying in case of
further course alterations.
The wind at Cowes is currently west-north-westerly,
with a mean speed of around 5.7kts. As the day progresses
it is expected to back into the south-west and strengthen
to around 15kts, promising a good afternoon's racing
at Skandia Cowes Week.
Stay tuned for further updates as we get closer to
a start time currently scheduled for 11:10 as this
is sure to be an exciting hard fought event.
