Nacra17 Worlds evening update

Today the wind was perfect for the sailors to get out on the water. It was decided by the race committee to complete three races today to make up for lost time the last two days due to weather conditions.

Billy and Marie (FRA001) are absolutely tearing through the competition, with a second place in the first race and four consecutive first places, they are the clear winners of the qualification races. The runner ups are Gimson/Diamond(GBR201) and Nørregaard/Viborg(DEN281).

Aruba had trouble the yesterday with a broken mast after crossing the finish line which meant work until midnight to straighten things out. They came back strong and finished third in the first race and ninth and eight in the following.

It was a very good day for competition, finishing at 17.30 clearing all six races without any incidents. We’re looking forward to the gold and silver fleet competing tomorrow.
