Lack of wind on Lake Lucerne yesterday forced the abandonment of the third day's racing

The third day of racing at the the Yngling world championship came to a standstill yesterday on Lake Lucerne, Brunnen, Switzerland, due to a lack of wind.

The competitors waited all morning hoping for the breeze to show its face and when it became evident that it was unlikely to happen, the race committee took the decision to abandon racing for the day.

It is hoped that the championship will recommence today, but the forecast is for continued light winds so it is looking doubtful that the full 10-race series will be sailed.
