Update from Valencia

O for 2. No wind again. Very frustrating for the TV rights holders…those who invested a great deal to broadcast the races live in their home countries. Of course it is frustrating for the spectators too. Imagine the people who have planned trips to Valencia, paid money for the hotel and rides on boats to go out and watch. It is tough on everyone, but there is nothing to do but be patient.

It will come good, but what a shame to start off this way. I can’t remember a Louis Vuitton Cup that started with no sailing on the first two days. I think it is a record and it will be hard to beat in the future. Let’s hope we don’t extend the record.
