The recent strong wind weather pattern in Sydney continued today causing the abandonment of the scheduled Race 4 of the 3-Buoys 18ft Skiff Challenge series.

Delays of more than one hour occurred before the starter finally declared the race officially off.

The race had been due to see the first season outing for the new Gotta Love It 7 skiff, which was christened earlier in the day.
