After two sailing days this global challenge cup is ended by the worsening circumstances. At this moment the waveheight is 4.5 meter. Winners are indeed a father and son who have never sailed at sea, only on small inside lakes!!!!!!!!!!!! Blaming all the salt sea sailors.
With regard to the Round of the Isle itself it seems that saterday maybe possible, but the wave height remains a critical factor. Hope that this Vimeo channel will keep showing vids

hey boy, what did you do over there, alone far out at sea?.. "huh....., that's the only place where I'm happy, sir.
I got to the island last night but it is still really windy (30-40+ knots!). Hopefully we can get a few hours on the water on Friday. Conditions for Saturday are actually looking quite decent, 13-16 knots. Not much you can do about it unfortunately. Windguru forecast: https://beta.windguru.cz/113678
Racing postponed all day due to strong winds and waves till 16:00, then they started one race with only 5 boats since conditions where still very rough. One of the F18s broke their mast coming back to the beach unfortunately.
Tomorrow should be much better with 5 races planned.
