Inshore Racing Cancelled in St Tropez

The strong, boisterous mistral breeze that consumed Saint-Tropez this morning hadn't eased by early afternoon forcing the race committee to raise the A underneath the AP flag signal at 14:24 CEST and confirm the cancellation of today’s inshore racing at the Giraglia Rolex Cup. 

With gusts peaking at a maximum of 40 knots today, calmer winds are predicted for tomorrow’s inshore racing, which should ensure that the crews have the opportunity to finalise their preparation for the start of the offshore race on Wednesday.
