August 11th: Cowes Week Photos – SailGP
By Sunday 11th August the gale of Friday and Saturday had decreased to force 6 gusting 7 and the SailGP event, cancelled the previous day, went ahead. Conditions were still marginal for the foiling cats and the race start was delayed until after low water so that the tide was with the wind rather than against it. Even so, in the first race, the US entry performed a gracefully slow capsize and the UK entry nose dived and sustained damage which kept her out of the rest of the event.
Here are some photos taken from Lepe during the first race:
I also managed to get a few photos of the later race or races:
