Yesterday’s fourth day of racing at the Finn Gold Cup was postponed at 1430hrs due to 25 – 30 knot winds along the Dorset coast.
After several attempts to set courses both outside in Weymouth Bay and inside Portland Harbour, the race committee agreed the weather wasn’t going to subside and eventually hoisted the ‘AP’ over ‘A’ flag sequence, sending the 90 sailors back to shore.
For Iain Percy, the end of racing signalled the start of another session in the protest room where he will contest his disqualification from Monday’s first race (series race two) based on new photographic evidence.
Photographic and video evidence provided to the international jury last night convinced them that he was in fact not over the line early in yesterday’s first race (series race four). Reddress was granted giving Percy average points based on all races completed and not classed OCS or DSQ, giving him 1.5 points for race four and moving him up to 25th overall.
