Sailing: Another Postponement

More frustration for the Irish sailors, Peter O'Leary and Stephen Milne in the Star class, with the two races scheduled for today now rescheduled for tomorrow (Wed 20th Aug).
Event organisers have a tough challenge to ensure that Races 8, 9 & 10 are completed in order to conclude the ten race Opening Series. In addition, under the Regatta Rules, no race can start after 16.00hrs local time on the closing day of the Opening Series.
Only the top ten boats from the Opening Series can compete in the Final Medal Race which is scheduled for Thurs Aug 21
Currently the Irish Star sailors are 14th overall, just eight points off Italy in 10th place and are naturally eager to count all three races tomorrow.
Their results to date include 6th, 12th, 7th, 10th, 12th, 13th; they are discarding another 13th result.
