Weather prognosis, plus insects

We have had really nice weather for a while, about 20 degrees (Celsius) and sunshine. This seems to be over, and we are expecting more shifting weather.

The maximum temperatures during the day will probably be between 15 and 20 degrees, the minimum during the night around 10. It looks like we will have winds between 5-10 m/s.There might be some rain – hopefully not so much and mostly on Monday.

There may be some mosquitoes, but they have not been much of a problem this summer. Don’t go with bare feet and legs in high grass and check for ticks, they can carry severe infections.

Buoy positions

The buoy positions can be found here.

More information of the starting and finishing lines for the triangular and fleet race will appear the day before the races when we have an idea about the wind directions.
