Breeze on in Copenhagen

Racing was cancelled today in Denmark at the RC44 Copenhagen Cup with winds reaching up to 35 knots. The teams left the dock and the more adventurous raised their spinnakers en route to the start area, but to no avail. Still, it made for some good images from Gilles Martin-Raget.

(The cancellation was a disappointment for HRH Frederik, Crown 
Prince of Denmark who was scheduled to race on board '17' 
but had to settle for a short sail instead.)

(Those in town hoping to watch some racing were instead treated to the America's Cup trophy on display at the Royal Danish Yacht Club)
