Second place in Pre-Worlds

Today the Pre-Worlds One Sails Cup ended and conditions today had very light winds and after some waiting only one race could be completed in around 5 knots of wind out of the planned three.

We came on 6th place in the race today and overall we finished on second place in the regatta with the series 4, 2, 2, 1.6 and (6) with a total score of 7.5 after one discard. We congratulate the winners Italia 11.98 Sugar 3. On third place was J-112E Adelante. All results here

The race today was difficult and we had extreme wind shifts in the light conditions, on the first beat we the wind changed 80 degrees so key was to find the wind and be on the right side in the shifts and did not manage to do a perfect sailing but overall we are happy with the regatta and finishing second is good and gives us a good feeling for the upcoming Worlds.

Now we will have some more training tomorrow and then a free lay day on Saturday. Then on Sunday the World Championship will be opened with a practice race.
