2014 SCIRA World Championship of Masters

Fukuoka, Japan

Fukuoka, Japan (August 30, 2014) – Racing was called off yesterday as thunder was heard in the pouring rain… after we woke up to a 5.9 earthquake 300km away. Today we awoke to the first blue skies all week which meant true sea breeze conditions. Only one race possible as wind speeds held strong over the “safety” limit. Americans Augie Diaz/Kate Sheahan all smiles with their first bullet to move up to 7th and three points away from the podium. Joel Zackin/Celeste Suggs sit in 20th. Racing begins three hours earlier tomorrow, which should allow for two final races in the expected sea breeze. It will be a fight to the finish… Results, photos and more will be posted throughout the week at the event site: http://www.fsaf.net/snipe/
