Day #3 Morning Report - Hempel World Cup Series Final - Marseille

After Wednesday's blowout, conditions in Marseille will ease up for Thursday's action at the Hempel World Cup Series Final.

Gusts in excess of 30 knots were reported across the racing areas which meant only a small number of races were completed as the conditions were unsafe for racing. A veering north west to south west breeze is expected to work its way across Marseille with 13-16 knots with gusts of up to 20 knots which should allow for a full day of racing.

Only the Open Kiteboarding fleet completed all their races on Wednesday meaning that every fleet, minus the RS:X, have an additional race added to their schedule today.

Catch up on yesterday's highlights below:
