Yesterday's first race was sailed in a 4-5 knot Easterly breeze and low current. Two hours after the Delta flag had been displayed on shore the RC tried to start the race with P flag, but the procedure failed due to too many unidentified boats on the course side. The second procedure, with U flag, led to the actual start of the race at 14:16, with three boats scored UFD.
A wind rotation forced the RC to signal two course changes during the race, both of which were conducted without inconveniences. The winners of the race were the British boat crewed by Jamie Harris and Antonia Wilkinson, the standing leaders of the ranking.
For the second race of the day the wind was a bit stronger, blowing 7 knots at the beginning and 9 knots at the end of the race. This time there were three starting procedures, one with Papa, the other with U flag and the final one with Black flag. Fortunatelly none of the boats were scored BFD.
Mateo Ronchi and his crew Valentino Lancom from Argentina scored a bullet that helped them climb positions in the overall ranking (they are now 4th but with a 34th to discard).
In the promotional fleet Anna Wooton and Bea Green finished 4th and 1st in races 3 and 4 respectively, and are still the leaders of the ranking, followed by their fellow team mates Angus Collingridge and Emilia Green. Julian Finsterbusch and Ignacio Stern from Argentina, are third overall but chances are big that they climb up positions after the fifth race, when the discard becomes effective.
As has been done throughout the event, the organising committee invited the delegations to a special evening, this time with a Tango Show.
