Very bad for business and in the end for sailing.

Yeah except this could go on for months just to get the LV cup races done. I don't think the people proposing the wind be lower than 20kts understand that it's rare for it to be sub-20 kts during the summer months. When the 45's raced in October here it was 18-20, and that's at the tail end of the summer wind here.
