2015 Laser World Championships Measurement Days

Busy day for the measures getting in all 159 charter boats, masts and foils all certified for the #LaserWorlds15 at CORK​. The sailors have been practicing on the water for the past week, familiarizing themselves with the venue. 

Slow start to the day yesterday with some drizzle and 6-8 kts with a full thermal blowing in the afternoon delivering typical Kingston conditions. Most took full advantage of this, training starts and short courses for 3-4 hours. Great view to be had from the pier at Portsmouth Olympic Harbour.

Today the clouds took over and light and shifty winds from the ESE with showers in the afternoon.  

Stay tuned as the Practice Race starts tomorrow at 1400 with the Opening Ceremonies in the evening followed by the Canada Day fireworks.
