Weather forecast:
Super Sunday is forecast for day 4 of the Hempel Sailing World Championships Aarhus 2018 with the offshore westerlies continuing to build over 20 knots -  gusting 30 – on the furthest courses out in the Bay of Aarhus. It should be a good day to go flying.

The high-pressure system that was over Great Britain has moved closer to Denmark at the same time as a low-pressure system has moved closer to Norway. The result is a strengthening north-westerly flow over Denmark, of 290-300 degrees.

Temperature: 19-2 ℃
Sea temperature: 21 ℃
