Malcolm Osborne reports

The race start for day two of the Tera World Championships was scheduled
for 09:00, so Race Officer Bruce Keytel mustered his mark layers early
to lay a course with a fluky northerly wind, which was expected to go to
the west.. The Tera fleet launched, but had to wait until the wind
filled in. This it did not do – it died! The fleet was sent back to
shore, where the youngsters found other activities on the lawns to keep
themselves occupied.

After 12:00, a light south easterly wind filled in, a course was laid
and a race could at last be started. With a 10 minute interval between
the Tera Pro’s and the Tera Sports, the leading Sports only just caught
up to the tail ender Pro’s by the end of the race. The wind was fading
and to ensure the race being completed, the Tera Sport course was
shortened to the gate at the bottom of the final run. The fleet was kept
on the water for a while in the hopes of a second race, but this did not
materialise.

The Tera Pro fleet winner of race 4 was James Hellstrom, strengthening
his lead in this fleet overall, Jason Gray second. Tammy Holden was
third, resulting in a tie overall on points for third place with
Christopher Crawford.

The Tera Sport fleet winner was Arin Long, which puts him up to 3rd
overall. Michaela Robinson maintained her consistency to stay in the
overall lead by getting another second place. Benji Daniel stays in 2nd
place overall despite a 4th in this race. Taalia Naidoo scored a 3rd,
4th overall. These four have a comfortable points lead ahead of the rest
of the fleet.

ED. Please note there are 5 countries competing in the RS TEra Sport fleet and 6 in the Tera Pro fleet.
