Same Old Story, Racing Cancelled on Day 1

After three days of fairly steady rain, the sun shines over Auckland today. However, a strong NE breeze is also in the mix, gusting to 30 knots. After a short delay, media center director Bruno Troublé announced just before 10 a.m. that racing was cancelled for the day. Race 1 of the Louis Vuitton finals will now be moved to Sunday. This is the 18th of 54 schedule racing days that has been abandoned due to poor weather.
