ISAF Youth Multihull Evaluation Event

27 - 31 October 2003 Quiberon, FRANCE

After Cold Morning Start, First Speed Tests Undertaken
With very cold weather yesterday morning, and a heavy fog covering the Ecole Nationale de Voile, the morning briefing took place with the sailors and manufacturers to set out the day’s activities.

Measurement continued in the morning, alongside two speed tests and a race planned for the morning. Crews were also assigned to their boats.

The sailors were out on the water at about 1300 hours, and whilst the fog had given way to glorious sunshine, the breeze had decreased to 10 knots. Two speed tests were carried out successfully, but the decreasing breeze meant the cancellation of any racing. All of the ISAF Evaluation Panel had a good opportunity to look at the boats in a light breeze with a slight chop and all boats performed well in the conditions.

This morning (Wednesday) in Quiberon, the wind is 15-20 knots from the west, which provides superbly flat conditions in the Bay. The forecast is for a steady 20 knots, with 30-35 knots this afternoon. The schedule is for more speed tests in the afternoon, followed by two races. Crews will be rotated throughout the fleet to ensure fairness of trials.

The real test will be today, seeing how the boats perform in the heavier breeze.

Over the next two days, the ISAF Evaluation Panel will be meeting with each manufacturer to discuss business plans, class association structure and other details.
