The problems continue from yesterday, when one boat capsized after many complaints by competitors.

The first race on the Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon in Rio de Janeiro was due to start at 10.30 a.m. local time (1330 GMT). Earlier, officials had announced a one-hour delay from the original start time of 8.30 a.m.

Winds were roiling the waters of the lagoon. The International Rowing Federation (FISA) said this had affected the buoy system which marks the course.

Rough weather also affected the first day of the competition on Saturday, with some rowers complaining that the races should have been postponed.

FISA rejected the criticism, saying the conditions were the same for all the rowers.

The weather is expected to worsen over Monday and Tuesday, when more races are scheduled, FISA said late on Saturday.

The International Rowing Federation (FISA) rejected the criticism, saying the conditions were the same for all the rowers.

The weather is expected to worsen over Monday and Tuesday, when more races are scheduled, FISA said late on Saturday. There is a chance that repechage opportunities will be reduced if the schedule is too full.
