Present Conditions

Northerly vespers barely registering a wind speed - definitely not enough for racing, so it's a good thing that they weren't planning to start at 7.40am NZDT! Racing in Round Robin 2 Flight 7 will be under way by 10am, provided that conditions are good enough to permit this.

Weather Forecast

MetService says light southeasterly winds, 4-6km/h strengthening during the day as a trough approaches; showers developing later, with a high of 26C. The marine forecast has 20 knots of breeze. MetVUW also predicts more wind - around 10-15 knots.

To hear it...

Try the LIVESPORT link or 103FM in New Zealand for listening to commentary by Peter Lester and Harold Bennett on the racing, from 10am NZDT (10pm CET).

The same LiveSPORT web-radio channel also has occasional updates on the LIVESPORT TELECOM Women's Match Racing from Sara Roberts at the RNZYS.

To see it...

Courses will be laid off the Westhaven breakwater. A grandstand erected near the Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron provides a great view of the entire course.
