Good morning everyone and welcome to Savills & Mylor Rigging & Chandlery Day, the penultimate day, of the Henri Lloyd Half Ton Classics Cup in Falmouth. Everyone is on flying form here this morning, but sadly the wind isn’t. Right now we have sea mist and hardly a breath and as you can see from our photos flags are drooping and the harbour is like a mill pond.
Race Officer Jack Penty has made the decision to hold the competitors ashore for the time being so the AP flag is flying on the shoreside flagpole. He is going to sea to keep an eye on conditions and we hope to get racing later. If time permits the plan is for two windward leeward races followed by a regatta course. With tomorrow’s forecast being for very
strong winds everyone has all fingers and toes crossed that we can get sailing today.
Tonight we have the Championship Dinner which will take place in the Regatta Marquee from 6pm and after dinner everyone will walk over to the National Maritime Museum Cornwall where the daily prize giving will take place.
Stand by for updates from the race committee and fingers crossed that this mist burns off and we get some wind.
