There was no sailing today on the first day of the 2011 Victorian state A-class cataraman championships at McCrae Yacht Club on Mornington Peninsula, in which Glenn Ashby, Dean Barker and other members of Team New Zealand are entered.
The light breeze of the early morning died off before the scheduled start time. Racing was postponed ashore until finally postponed until tomorrow at 5pm.
An inshore breeze was enough to tempt a few sailors out for a late afternoon sail, but was confined too close to shore to allow a course to be set.
The forecast for tomorrow is good, with racing scheduled to start at 10:30am.
