After 3 days of racing the International One Design ()IOD) Fleet have now completed 8 of their scheduled 10 race series for the Vrengen Gold Cup at this year’s Bermuda International Invitational Race Week.
Race Officer Tom Clarke has loaded the front end of the Regatta with a maximum number of races due to the light wind forecast of Thursday.
Wednesday is a scheduled ‘spare day’ for the Regatta and Thursday’s forecast is currently calling for variable winds.
The current provisional standings for the overall series has Chester, Nova Scotia’s Peter Wickwire in first place with 14 Net Points, clear ahead of second place Mark Wincer from Haven Ports YC, UK who has 26 Net Points and Bermuda’s own Patrick Cooper has 31 Net Points and is in third place.
There is a protest hearing for race 8 between Peter McCausland and Paul Zupan.
