12 December 2014 – Issued on behalf of ISAF – Day five at the ISAF Sailing World Cup Melbourne was pedestrian compared to yesterday’s blow up on Port Phillip, and all-in-all produced the best day’s racing of the world-class event. The east in the 12-15 knot south-east breeze kept the inshore courses flat; further offshore the seas were lumpier though nothing like the steep walls of green water that forced the cancellation of racing yesterday for most classes.
Check out some highlights of the day below:
