Day 1 of the big return of the America’s Cup race trials to NYC was cut short, thwarted by uncooperative weather. The rain, although annoying was not the problem. It wasn’t the grey foggy skies. So, what held-up Saturdays events?
There just wasn’t enough wind. It’s kinda hard to have a sail race with not a whisper of a breeze.
Sunday, on the other hand was sail-day perfection. Puffy white cotton-ball clouds on a brilliant blue sky with a stiff WIND, and lots of it! Fireboat John J Harvey was front and center, with Gordon Cooper and Renee Lutz Stanley on board.
