Day one of racing at Sailing’s World Cup Series Miami, USA, will be mostly cloudy and sailors will face light winds throughout the day
For practice racing on Monday, Coconut Grove was blessed with glorious sunshine but on the morning of the first day of the competition there was a distinct contrast with grey skies throughout Miami.
The cloud cover is expected to increase through the day and there is also a possibility of isolated showers during the morning.
For the 543 sailors from 50 nations, Tuesday’s racing will be a chance to ease into the competition, as Biscayne Bay will deliver light wind speeds of 5-10 knots. The wind direction will be coming in from east south east and will eventfully move in further south.
