Winds were too light to race on the opening day Thursday of East Coast Docks Charlottetown Race Week.

The forecast today is not much better for the event that is celebrating 32 years of keel-boat racing and is a tradition among many Atlantic Canada competitors.

The racing takes place in Hillsborough Bay, outside the harbour and out of view from Charlottetown.

Officially the races are scheduled to conclude on Saturday, but extra time may need to be added due to the calm winds cancelling races Thursday and possibly today.
