Ioannideia 2015 Optimist Day 2

Heavy dust cloud that covers Cyprus since yesterday forced the Organizers to postponε all races and events for today, second day of Ioannideia 2015 International Optimist Regatta.  With a Yellow alert throughout the country, visibility down to minimum and an atmosphere that causes everyone discomfort there was no other way to proceed but cancelling all activities.

All though there was a stable breeze of 8 -10 knots since noon, visibility and discomfort were the two major reasons of cancellation.

The day did not go to waste though, since the sailors took advantage of some advices from the International Judge, Zvi Ziblat.

The racing program will proceed tomorrow with a minor change moving the first start at 14:00.
