Blowy conditions on Race Day 2 saw a few fun kite and gennaker moments for some yachts during their short, first windward-leeward race. There were a few ripped sails and a lot of Chinese gybes. Haumuri lost a protest to Illusions about their start, which made a small difference to final results.

The wind continued to build and shift during the morning, and with gusts of 38 knots the second race was abandoned. Yacht crews headed back to the boat harbour and marina for a welcome respite from the wind, before racing resumed after 1430.

The last race of the day was another short windward-leeward for both divisions. Wind shifted to the east and boats enjoyed another short blast to Somes. Crews enjoyed their steak dinner after a solid day’s work on the water.

At the end of Race Day 2 Satellite Spy is leading Blink for the Div A PHRF title amd it’s a close race between Gucci and Flying Machine for Div B.
