Day #1 Morning Report — How to the Follow the Hempel World Cup Series Miami
A morning northwest land breeze will turn to a light gradient wind from the west as the day progresses. The wind will turn at around noon, when most of the fleets will be out on the water racing, so postponements may be expected.
From 10:00 to 12:00 local time 6 to 10 knots are forecast before it decreases to 4 knots at 12:00, when the when veers. Although Miami has clear blue skies, the temperature is quite cool and not warm enough for a thermal sea breeze to develop. Once the wind has veered, a breeze in the region of 5-10 knots is forecast and is not predicted to go beyond this speed.
It is quite a change in conditions from the glamorous days the sailors have had in the build-up to the event, but sailors are prepared to expect the unexpected and will be raring to go in any conditions.
