Olympic and Paralympic classes opened Melbourne’s World Cup program in fickle southerly winds and easy-going seas. By the afternoon session 22 knot sou’easters and white capped waves had whipped up Port Phillip and turned the outing into a challenging physical contest at the upper wind limit for some classes.

In the Men’s Laser, race two was ‘super windy with steep waves’, not the best conditions for Stefano Marcia. Yet he coped well and finished the day with a 17 & 18 in a 35 boat fleet, to be 19th overall.
