Second day of competition at the Hempel World Cup Miami, USA. All ten classes are scheduled to race.
Again there were light winds early, but racing got underway in Southerly, 8 to 9 knot breeze, but the wind began to drop after the early races and some later races were postponed.
Frustrating day for everyone but with a few bright spots for the British Sailing Team:
In the 49er Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell recovered to grab a 3rd, but it is James Peters and Finn Sterritt who sit in 3rd place overall.
In the 49erFX Sophie Weguelin and Sophie Ainsworth had a difficult day but are second overall after four races. Charlotte Dobson and Saskia Tidey had a better day and are 4th place overall.
Alison Young took a second place in the Radial and is tied for the lead with Monika Mikkola of Finland after two races.
“We’ve had some tricky conditions so far which I seem to have made a reasonable job of.”
In the Nacra 17, John Gimson and Anna Burnet move into fifth place after five races.
Bryony Shaw came back with a second place in the RS:X.
“I knew I had to put a clean race together after my letters yesterday, so to get second in the only race of the day was a great way to bounce back!”
And in the Laser event, qualification is now complete and five Brits make it into the Gold Fleet: Lorenzo Chiavarini, Jack Wetherell, Elliot Hanson, Jack Cookson and Michael Beckett.
