The start of Race 9 from Singapore to Qingdao, China has been delayed due to the lack of wind and fading daylight.

 The Race Committee has decided the Race 9 start will now take place at 0700 local time or 2300 UTC this evening.

 As a result the fleet is proceeding north east on a course of 065° at 6 knots overnight until all 12 yachts are together at which time they will increase to 8.5 knots and aim to conduct a Le Mans start at first daylight.
