Try, Try, and Try Again at the 2015 Audi Melges 20 World Championship
30 September 2015
San Francisco, CA - The first day of the 2015 Audi Melges 20 World Championship hosted by The San Francisco Yacht Club (SFYC) has come to an early close with no races due to no breeze. The day got off to a very slow start with a more than two-hour long onshore postponement under grey, overcast skies and wet conditions. Teams congregated inside SFYC, sipping coffee and drinks as they waited patiently for news as to whether or not they would get to race today.
PRO Bruce Golison and his race management team studied the forecast diligently throughout the morning and well into the early afternoon. Golison eventually pulled the plug on what would have been the first day of racing at the 2015 World Championship.
For tomorrow, Golison is hopeful. “Based on the forecast, it looks like it will be a nice afternoon of sailing. We may postpone ashore initially, but we think that it could be a three race day, on the later afternoon side.”
