BMW ORACLE Racing today takes on Synergy Russian Sailing Team in the second match of Flights 1 and 2 on Day 3 of the Louis Vuitton Trophy Dubai. BMW ORACLE Racing leads the standings with 4 points on a 4-0 record while Synergy, led by new skipper Francesco Bruni of Italy, is third with 2 points on a 2-1 record.
The wind is forecast to blow from the north/northeast again today, between 8 and 14 knots, but this morning it is more east/northeast. The first warning signal won’t occur before 1300 local, meaning the BMW ORACLE-Synergy match likely won’t start until 1315 at the earliest.
