With no racing on Friday February 14 due to summer storms that wreaked havoc with the breeze, Saturday’s final day of the 49er, 49er and Nacra 17 2020 World Championship on Corio Bay in Geelong has been decided.
Two gold fleet races for all three fleets commencing from 0955hrs
Two silver and bronze fleet races immediately following
Three medal races commencing from 1355hrs in the following order: Nacra 17, 49erFX, 49er
Join us from 0950hrs (AEDT) to watch all the action live from the TV course on Corio Bay, Geelong, one of the ports along the vast horsehead-shaped bay in southern Victoria that is Port Phillip.
Saturday’s forecast is promising – wind out of the south-west building to the class’ upper limit of 25 knots, a figure that also takes into consideration the sea-state, which is not a factor at this flat-water venue. Showers are forecast and the hope is they will clear early and not hinder the breeze once again.
Summer storms passed over and around the host city, bringing thunder, rain and lightning, and leaving sick breeze in each frontal system’s wake. The race committee took off on boats after 4pm thinking there was a chance of a late green light, but it was not to be.
