With gusts of 40 knots in the central Solent predicted for today, and strong winds already kicking in, the second day of Cowes Classics Week is cancelled. It is hoped to resume racing tomorrow. Todays’ weather is in marked contrast to yesterday’s perfect conditions.
The hundreds of competitors competing in the 143 strong fleet will still be able to enjoy the Winkworth sponsored tea and cake in the afternoon at the Royal London Yacht Club, and a drinks reception at the Classic Boat museum.
Racing finishes on 2nd August 2019.
