America’s Cup San Francisco 2013 was to resume on Tuesday, but high winds forced the cancellation of two races. Now, today, Wednesday, those races are set to resume.
According to the America’s Cup live blog, the races today will mark the end of competition if New Zealand wins:
Regatta Director Iain Murray expressed confidence at his morning briefing that the conditions would be suitable for racing today, despite another day of strong ebb (outgoing) tide.
“Our intel tells us around 15 knots for first race and 16-17, maybe 18 for the second race,” said Murray. “Once again, a strong ebb tide today increasing as day goes on: -2 for the first race so a 21-knot limit, and -3 for the second race, so a 20-knot limit. Once again we have a convergence of wind and current, but the forecast looks ok and we feel confident.”
America’s Cup DJ And Sports Bar Fun
Meanwhile, hanging at the America’s Cup was a ton of fun, and punctuated by the DJ work of Greta Jedamzik at America’s Cup Sports Bar. Greta’s a lot of fun, and hot to boot, and new to San Francisco and looking for more DJ gigs. Here’s my video with her:
