2017 Sail Melbourne International Commences
The Port Phillip is where the action has kick-started for the Sail Melbourne International 2017 and day one was a really hot one. It was time for the Olympic classes to take the field on Day one of this event. The 2017 Sail Melbourne International will be on until December 3rd. The temperature for the first day of action was 35 degrees and it was a hot day in the waters for most of the sailors. The breeze in the morning was dull and the boats had to wait a long time for the ideal breeze to commence to get racing.
Almost all the Olympic classes were able to compete in two races despite the slow start of the event. The multi-hull sailors were lucky as they got a chance to complete three races. The windsurfers were the ones who had to be content with just one race for the opening day.
