Tim Healy and crew - leader of J24 worlds 2010 - when 2 races remain
One day left of the Championship and it will be hard for any of the competitors to challange Tim Healy and his crew from USA. Ian Southworth from England have the best chances. But who of them are the best crew in light and moderate winds? 8 races sofar - 2 races to sail. May the best crew win but after a week with hard winds, heavy rain, thunder and lightning all crews and skippers are heroes. Good luck to all.
Weatherforecast for tomorrow: Cloudy with some rain. Maximum day temperatures around 21 degrees Celsius. Light to moderate winds.

All boats and crews have now arrived in Malmö, last was the French participant. They arrived in the worst rain and immediately started with emptying the boat and made it ready for measuring. They had planned to live in tent at the marina, but imagine setting up a tent when the rain is pouring down... No, that would be unthinkable! Instead they are spending the night in MSS clubhouse, warm and dry.
41 boats are cleared for launching. Unfortunatelly we got really heavy rain after 4 o'clock this afternoon and they had to stop the measuring proceedure for the rest of the day. 13 boats are remaining and as long as nothing unexpected happens these 13 boats will be ready and put in water in time for the tune up race Sunday 14.00.
Just now the weatherforcast is promising much better weather Sunday, no rain, only partly sunny, partly cloudy, 20-22 C with moderate wind.
News Aug 14, 14.00
