July 4 - 9
Time until match day
After an all but washed out penultimate day of the World Match Racing Tour Newport, Newport laid it on today with Taylor Canfield and his US One team claiming the Championship.
10-15 knot winds off Fort Adams enabled the race organizers to pile in a full day of competition at the World Match Racing Tour Newport, to conclude the Super 16 Knockout round. The gusty conditions on Newport Harbour once again made for nail-biting racing with much hull flying and lead changes.
After yesterday’s torrential rain and pea soup fog that restricted visibility on the race course, today Mother Nature smiled upon Newport, Rhode Island. The early morning mist burned off, finally revealing Goat Island and downtown Newport (invisible all of yesterday) and the sun came out allowing a gusty sea breeze to build into the high teens.
