The fifth event of the 2017 Melges 20 World League gets a slow start – no wind, no racing
Marina di Scarlino, Italy (May 12, 2017) – Sadly, there was just not enough wind to get any races underway at the 2017 Melges 20 World League, European Division event hosted by Marina di Scarlino/Club Nautico Scarlino.
Thirty-three excited teams packed the docks this morning in anticipation of the start with smiles all around. With an originally scheduled 13:30 warning signal, the AP flag was displayed around mid-afternoon. Shortly thereafter, racing was called for the day.
The fleet hopes to get things going regardless on Saturday with a scheduled first warning of 11:00 (Italy).
The Melges 20 World League European Division is supported by Helly Hansen, Garmin Marine, Toremar, Lavazza and Barracuda Communication.
