LANGKAWI, 11 January 2023 – A beautiful sunny day dawned in Langkawi for the second day of the RLIR but the ‘wind- Gods’ chose not to play giving us only light and variable winds of 3-5 knots all day.
All boats were on standby and waiting for better sailing conditions and at about midday the wind picked up sufficiently for the PRO to decide that all classes except cruising class may be able to race in the afternoon. The AP flag finally came down at 13.25.
Start pin and rounding marks were all set and ready to go but a big cumulo-nimbus rain cloud was killing what little wind there was. We all remained hopeful and in good spirits but unfortunately at 14.30 the AP flag was raised and all races were cancelled so no racing on day 2.
Let’s hope for a better more favorable winds on day 3.
