After a storm front passed through last night there was still plenty of breeze and waves about for the third day of racing at the Australian Youth Championships.
The club officials managed the conditions well and kept the boats ashore for some time waiting to ensure the conditions were safe for all those heading out.
With roughly 400 people around the club waiting for racing to go ahead, the Adelaide Sailing Club managed the mass amount of people really well, with both the canteen and upstairs bistro open to serve the people and keep them as comfortable as possible until a decision was made.
With the television on and the committee making frequent announcements with time frames and thoughts of the committee, all the people involved were kept in the loop.
After racing we spoke to jury member Tim Went and principal race officer Mike Rogers, two blokes who have been mates for more than 50 years and have run regattas all over the world together.
They spoke about how the event was going and also about how great the Adelaide Sailing Club facility is for events like this.

With the call finally made that racing will in fact go ahead, the 420s, Techno 293 sailboards and Lasers completed two races, while the 29ers only finished one due to the conditions.
The work from the committee on the water was nothing short of exceptional with some breakages and injuries being managed efficiently and professionally.
It has become clear that the Adelaide Sailing Club is a great facility with a huge amount of resources and experienced volunteers to make sure large events like the Youths — or any event for that matter — is run to the highest of standards where safety and fun for the athletes is paramount.
