Day 2 of GJW Direct SailFest regatta

Plenty of breeze for the second day of racing at GJW Direct SailFest in Portland Harbour. The wind gradually strengthened throughout the first race, on a larger course than Saturday featuring some awesome reaches. A few breakages forced some early retirements but the majority of the fleet remained out. Between the 2nd and 3rd race of the day the wind returned and from then on there was a steady flow of retirements throughout the afternoon.
