16:41 | no more racing today - wind was tantalisingly close to OK - but too many holes particularly to windward.
16:14 | we are still on hold - a few sailors have taken to the water - RO says wind is still unstable 6 to 8 knots and shifty with holes - not ideal!
15:28 | wind has picked and in the right direction. Race Committee are on the water
14:56 | we are still on hold - first possible warning signal is at 1600
14:17 | It is hot and sunny - and no wind... the forecast is not promising , except for perfect BBQ conditions!

18:03 | Wind has picked up - 12 to 14 knots - AP down in 5 minutes
17:19 | So, at least, a short break ashore - still time to get 2 back to back races completed - yesterday the wind came in late ..
17:17 | wind dropped - race officer decided to send the sailors back to the beach - and , guess what - wind picked up again
16:54 | It is looking very light out on the course ...all racers are on the water, just waiting
16:18 | AP down - wind is 10 to 12 knots
12:17 | If possible we will attempt 2 races back to back - fleet one on outer loop , fleet 2 on inner loop.
12:16 | We have extended the postponement - first possible warning signal is now 15:00 ; but the forecast predicts racing is unlikely to start until very late - maybe 18:00
10:33 | Reminder that skippers meeting will be at 12:00 - first possible warning signal at 14:00

16:45 | course is ready - just need settled conditions for AP to come down
16:17 | AP is still flying at the beach - conditions are slowly improving . It could be another late finish !
