Kiel Week 2019. Waiting for Wind

by Richard Crockett

Today looks as if it may be a long day for competitors and followers of the RSA sailors at home as the forecast is not looking good for wind.

Kai Leslie sent me a pic of the flags hanging limply from the mast.

Liesl King told me that Alex Burger and Benji Daniel have made the silver fleet in the 49ers, but as there is not a breath of wind, racing is on an indefinite hold, while weather report suggests it is very unlikely there will be any sailing today.

And the 49er guys, Benji and Alex doing what they do best – concentrating hard and sailing flat and fast.

Let’s hope they get sailing on a good wind today.
