With winds forecasted to be below the required six knot minimum at 3pm, regatta director Iain Murray hopes that moving the racing to the outermost Course A will make the most of valuable winds.

"We will get races, it's just how long we have to wait for them," Murray said.

There is also a 7pm course cut off time that Murray will have to keep a watchful eye
over.

With Team NZ still the team to beat, and almost looking like certain finalists when they
face struggling Team UK in the first semi-final this afternoon schedule for 15:12.
