Cowes Week Day 4 Round Up

Tuesday, August 11, 2015 - 19:28

RACING was abandoned on Liz Earle Ladies Day (Tuesday) because of lacklustre winds and too much cloud cover.

It meant female crews were unable to compete for the Royal Southern YC Ariel Trophy.

It is normally awarded to the female helmsman with the best overall result on Ladies Day, but will instead be competed for tomorrow.

Tomorrow's weather forecast looks more positive, with a strong east to north-easterly wind quickly increasing to 15 to 20 knots. Gusts could be much higher.

Rain is also predicted to hold off, meaning visitors will have a better chance of keeping up with the racing.

Competitors have been urged to fly their Liz Earle Ladies’ Day flags tomorrow and a rib will be cruising around the fleets, offering on the spot prizes to those with hoisted flags.

When the boats return to the water, Adam Gosling will be looking to hold on to his lead in the Black Group.

Mr Gosling skippers the Yes! and is looking to make it a second overall win in a row, having won at last year’s Cowes Week.

In the White Group, Giles Peckham will be hoping his Dauntless can continue a good run of form in the Daring Class.

Young helmsmen will also be hoping to perform well, as the under 25s compete for the Aberdeen Asset Management Under 25 Trophy and the Young Skippers’ Trophy.
