The main reason for that is the absence of stronger pressure gradients at the surface so we can say it is not going to be a high wind race. This is in a way a relief since we might see the famous rock of Jabuka again. Is it going to be slow? Not necessarily, there still might be some of the Jugo (SE) around at the start especially further out on the open sea. There are quite a few convective systems around, and each will bring its own wind system. The Saturday is still almost entirely open with a modest chance of NW-ies coming through.
See you in Tribunj,
