Winds in excess of 30–knots off the Old Head of Kinsale forced the abandonment of the programme for Day 3 of the Euro Car Parks Half Ton Classics Cup at Kinsale Yacht Club, Ireland.

Although the conditions had eased by lunchtime, visibility was poor and a heavy seaway remained in the course area.

An earlier start on Thursday is planned including the possibility of a four race day including a coastal course that could complete the series in view of further strong conditions forecast.
