Day 2 and two more races brings the number of races sailed so far to 4 – and a day in which both our RSA teams slipped down the rankings.

Racing was in 11 knots, building to 15-16 knots, before decreasing to around 12-13 knots for the final stages of the day’s second races. Reading the pressure and spotting the windshifts was critical and a huge test for the young teams on the challenging race track of the Saronic Gulf.

Racing continues today (Thursday 27 July) with two races for all fleets, and the conclusion of the qualification series for the 420 Open division.
