I-14 Worlds rewarded with great racing conditions on day 2

Day 2 of the I-14 Worlds in Carnac, France and after one more race Glen Trusswell and Sam Pascoe keep their lead.

Alisdair Cattanch eloquently summed up the day in stating that although they had to “wait around a wee bit”, that ultimately they were rewarded with “great racing conditions”.

After several abadoned attempts to get the eager fleet away, the wind gave up and they had to wait for it to return.

The eventual start was conducted under a black flag, and finally the fleet were off.

The first windward mark rounding saw Pascoe and Truswell leading, followed by a swarm of Aussie boats.

This included Krstic and Lanati, Devine and Furlong, and Blasse and Gilligan, who had everything to prove following yesterday’s unfortunate breakage.

The wind still had a couple of tricks up its sleeve though, and the fleet were subject to a significant right hand shift at the start of the second beat.

Of which Gilbert and McGrane and Jones and Fitzgerald took full advantage, using the opportunity to propel themselves further up the fleet and into the top five.

So, a second win for Glen Trusswell and Sam Pascoe, with Mark Krstic and James Lanati AUS in second and Neale Jones and Ed Fitzgerald third.
