Re: Lack of wind on long distance race

Or this year's Driftsure. That was fun, 36 hours of light winds, strong currents, anchoring in Race Passage before finally retiring in sight of the finish line.
Anyway, I don't know of any racing where racers are compensated for there not being much wind, that's racing for you.
