Sailors across the ten Olympic Events and Open Kiteboarding are fully prepared for the opening day of racing at the Hempel World Cup Series Final in Marseille, France.
Marseille has been soaked in sunshine in the days leading up to the start of racing and the wind conditions have been excellent, providing the perfect platform for the sailors to train and prepare.
A south easterly breeze is expected for the opening day with 13-15 knots forecast. The RS:X and Finn fleets will kick off racing from 11:00 local time with the remaining fleets following thereafter.
