Hyeres World Cup - Day 2 - Results

Day 2 of the World Cup Series Hyeres regatta and racing final started with a bit of a stutter, after Tuesday's up and down breeze.Hannah Mills and Eilidh McIntyre -

A foggy morning with no wind became a sunny afternoon with a light 5-8 knot breeze that tested the sailors composure and patience with delays ashore and on the water.

Overall not a very good day for the Brits, but a couple of surprises.

In the Laser, Nick Thompson popped up to win race 4 to remind everyone he was still around.

And in the 49er James Peters and Rhos Hawes finally made it into single figures in race 5, while Dylan Fletcher and Stuart Bithell continued their see-saw ride with a fourth and a BFD.

Best not to look too close in the Finn, where the Brits seem to be taking turns to have one decent result each, except for Ed Wright, but there's still time.

Similarly in the two RS:X events it is just not going GBR's way, but saw Bryony Shaw and baby on Southern TV and she seemed happy that she was sitting this one out.

In the Radial, Georgina Povall has been making the best of the conditions, and sits in 5th place some 29 places ahead the next GBR competitor, Alison Young.

Sophie Weguelin and Sophie Ainsworth are also in 5th in the 49erFX as is Lorenzo Chiavarini in the Laser.

Could be some more results to come but the WS scoreboard has packed in again, will update as and when . . . Until tomorrow . . .
