First Days Racing

Daniel coming down wind
After a one hour postponement all fleets went afloat (700 boats, 900 competitors). Conditions to begin with were a 6kt sea breeze, before veering and building to around 12kts as per the forecast.

The sailors raced in their own coloured fleets for todays two races, so four starts for each race! GBR picked up no black flags, and highlights included a 3rd for Dan, and a 8th for Mimi, so ice cream all round. Top 20's were also scored by Josh, Jemima Will and Georgia.

Three boats (Mimi, Dan and Murray) had trackers on, so you can re-live their racing on the website (

Racing is the very top level, with a number of top nations world's teams here! Particularly impressive were the Singaporian's (SIN 33 won both her races, one by significantly over a minute)

Flights all get resorted tomorrow!

More to follow....
