Lack of wind at 3th racing day of Delphis Dart 18 WC 2011

During the rigging up of the boats on the 3th racing day of the delphis Dart 18 Worlds it was raining cats & dogs. The wind was looking ok, so at 11 o’clock the first race of the day was a on. The rain was already gone than, but unfortunately the wind was also shifting and reducing. This caused a general recall. Because of the low wind and a strong current they weren’t able to start. After waiting an hour the sailors were send ashore. At half past one the current was less and the wind was increasing. Race 5 was finally able to begin. The first start was immediately a good one. David and Louise Roberts from England made the most of it and were ahead at the First mark, immediately followed by Michiel Fehr and Raphael Jakob from Switzerland. In the downwind course David Lloyd and Joanna Jones-Pierce took the lead but were overtaken again in the next one by team Roberts who kept the first place till the finish, followed by Fehr-Jakob and Alan & Fiona Kernick from Great-Britain in third place. With this third place the Kernicks take the lead from Dodé and Fred Moreau from France, who finished twentieth today.
