On Thursday 15 September 2016 started Race 01 of the Sir Ab Nur Offshore series. IdeesfixVIII and Pindar were on the start line in NW winds at 12 Kts. During the night the wind slowly dropped and turned to the SE. Both Pindar and IdeesfixVIII retired when the wind totally dropped and no progress could be made. The heat also made life quite uncomfortable on board. We will be all hoping for more wind for the next Sir Ab Nur Race.
