Light winds that have caused so many problems at the World Cup in Genoa have also beset IRC racing in Cowes and at Spi Ouest Regatta at La Trinite Sur Mer this weekend.
The RORC Easter Regatta is two days in and there's not a race sailed yet on the Solent. With two complete days of no wind, there is a very poor forecast for the final day tomorrow too.
In France, the Spi Ouest Regatta, where Andrew Algeo's new J99 is having its maiden sail in IRC B division, is also confronting light winds.
The 400 boat regatta lost the first day to no wind but got three races in today, in light to moderate airs.
Neither of the two new J99s racing have found the going to their liking so far and, most interestingly, a 20-year-old Beneteau design has won all three races in IRC class B.
The French J lance J99 crew (a full works team) is 10th overall. Juggerknot II (Andrew Algeo) is 19th from 26 with the well sailed Beneteau 40.7 Pen Koent winning all the races today.
