AUG 10 WE WILL GO SAILING

Vegvisir Race Team can assure all participants that we will have a race on from Thursday. Make no mistake we're closely following the development of the race weather and we do take our precautions to make sure that all 4 races will take place under a high security level.

That being said we actually think that the weather looks like propper racing weather or maybe even like real Vegvisir Race Weather where the participants are in for great experiences with the possibility to find their inner Vegvisir.

AUG 2 First FORECAST FOR WEEK 33

The first forecast for the Vegvisir Race weather is in. Danish Meteorological Institute are predicting typically Danish summer weather - including incoming fronts that the participants will have to negotiate .  

Week 33:  The unstable weather seems to continue almost as in week 32. A low pressure will mostly lie just west of southern Scandinavia and continue to send fronts with clouds and a little rain over Denmark, followed by little or occasionally some sun and some showers that can be quite powerful locally and perhaps with thunder. Temperatures typically seem to reach around 20 degrees, but some days with sun we may reach between 20 and 25 degrees. Night temperatures will typically be between 12 and 16 degrees. On average, the week seems to end around the normal average temperature and precipitation amounts slightly or slightly above normal. (Source dmi.dk)
