The third day of Aquece Rio International Sailing Regatta 2015 is expected to stir up a stronger breeze than the first two days with 20 knots on the cards.
Sailors were challenged by Rio’s light breeze and current over the weekend but Monday is a new day that brings a strong southern breeze.
Inside Guanabara Bay, a late morning five to 10 knot breeze will pick up to 10-15 knots. The outside courses will see a stronger breeze in the region of 15-20 knots with gusts.
It’s expected to be another warm day in Rio in the late 20s. However it will turn from clear to partly cloudy as the day moves on.
