Lack of wind on long distance race

Hi folks!
today we just finished a 20 Nm long distance race in our club in Progreso
Mexico.
"maravilloso" our boat has the smallest number of phrf in our float.
The race was a 4h 15 m. long, but in the middle of the race, about 1 hour
all the boats were lack of wind.
for this, our competidor got closed about 1m 30 s for the handicap.
if the wind was gone for two or three Hours all the others boats had come by
several minutes.
is there any rule to compensate this.

tks!
