Light northeasterly wreaks havoc

For day three of the RC44 Puerto Sotogrande Cup, the Mediterranean laid on different conditions to the first two days. While the sun remained, there was initially no wind and when it did fill in, it was blowing down the coast, from the northeast, rather than the westerly offshore breeze of the first two days.
