All Ireland Sailing Championships Postponed Again Due to Weather

25th November 2011
All Ireland Sailing Championships Postponed Again Due to Weather
Tomorrow's all Ireland sailing championships has been postponed again due to a high wind forecast

Following a meeting with the PRO and club Sailing Manager the conclusion was reluctantly reached that sailing would not be possible tomorrow (Saturday 26th). Weather forecasts for Saturday are predicting winds 30/40 knots, this is well in excess of the safe limit for the fleet of boats being provided by RSGYC. Met Eireann have Gale Warnings in effect for the weekend.

From Met.ie...

Outlook for a further 24 hours until 0600 Sunday 27 November 2011: Gale or strong gale force south to southwest winds veering west to northwest overnight. Rain or showers, heavy at times.

The decision is to POSTPONE the regatta until Saturday December 3rd as the winds seem to moderate from the middle of the week.

A change to the Notice of Race will be made to this effect.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.
