No races were held today in Bermuda as the wind was too light or non existent.  A Big high pressure system has come and squatted on us.

Today’s schedule is moved to tomorrow with a slightly better forecast of southwesterly wind at 4 knots building to 8 knots and building to 12 knots tomorrow night.  Let’s hope in comes in a bit earlier!

Friday looks like 8-12 knots and Saturday about the same.  At the end of next week, June 7-9, there could be too much wind for racing.  The beauty of mother nature.

Just a bit about the America’s Cup Village.  This America’s Cup has the most “Village” atmosphere of any Cup so far. There are bars, restaurants, shops for event clothing and all of the teams, VIP hospitality, Team
