Live Updates: Day 2

RACE 2: Bit of a strange wind day here, race 1 experienced much variability an wind speed and direction. The wind has now swung around to the West. For race 2, the course had to be relayed but we now have some wind picking up, making some interesting racing. IRC 2, 3 and 4 all started cleanly. Non spinnikars had a general recall on their first start and had a black flag raised on the second but the line was clear. There seems to have been an incident on the line although it’s not fully clear. Live updates sponsored by O2 Daunt Square.

The race officer decided to use a black flag but this time the start was clear. 1720s all clear also. The course for all of fleet A is the same as earlier today but the marks have been spaced out to give a longer race! It’s been …
