So far the predicted wind has failed to materialise. We have a light wind , but it is not coming from the right direction ! .....however the race officer is going back out to the race area, it is begining to fill in from the west - we are still hopeful of racing today.
13:30
Good news... the wind is starting to picking up and moving slowly to the proper direction...!

11:00
it is a cooler start to the day , but still no wind .However the forecast is for wind later this afternoon.
The intention today is to complete 2 quick races back to back and then reseed the heats in the break; and the possibility of a further race at the very end of the day.

10:30
Good morning from Portimao... The sky is a little bit cloudy today so maybe the wind will come at least...
At the moment there is no wind :(
