Optimist Sailors Have Fun Despite No Wind today

It was back to the waiting game today for the competitors at the 2019 South American Championship taking place at the Cofradía Náutica del Pacífico Club in Algarrobo, Chile.

Following a spectacular day yesterday of wind and waves under sunny skies, the grey cloud cover returned today preventing the wind from filling in.

However, despite no wind, the Optimist Sailors had fun just hanging together with their teammates and newly formed friends on shore.   They were skateboarding, playing foosball and card games, even hanging out in the Volvo cars on the venue dreaming of the day that they will drive one.  

Unfortunately, after several hours of waiting, the races were postponed until tomorrow.  Racing will resume on the final day of the championship,  but will be starting an hour earlier at 11:00am. At the end of racing tomorrow the new 2019 South American Champion will be crowned.
