Racing is delayed due to strong wind and high waves in the Bay of la Napoule

27 knots were recorded earlier today on the terrace of the Yacht Club de Cannes, the strong wind, confused sea-state and the BMS (bulletin météo spécial - special weather bulletin) call for caution.

“We’re opting for a postponement for all classes. We have scheduled a second skippers’ briefing for 11:30 to see how to move forward. For the time being it is sure windy!” Explained Jérôme Nutte, race director of the Régates Royales. Organisers and crews do not want to face boat-breaking conditions right on the opening day of the regatta.
