"The conditions were excellent, if you could ignore the rain and cold temperatures. All of the classes were sailing in a compressed area because the committee was justifiably nervous about the forecast. The wind stayed in the mid to high teens, but there was a terrible accident on another course. A young Austrian Tornado sailor was killed after a capsize. Details are sketchy, but it seems that he was trapped under the trampoline. The balance of racing was cancelled after the accident. This tragic loss has shaken everyone."
