Hobie 16 Worlds: Mixed fleets Day 2

Costa Brava Pirineu de Girona: The afternoon thermal on the Gulf of Roses just keeps delivering and lumpy and bumpy was the theme of the day.

Early in the racing, the breeze was a bit stronger 12-14 knots but waned throughout the day. The waves were a bit bigger making it a bit tougher to drive upwind. Most crews were double trapezing in the first session, and single trapezing in the second session.

The shore break created a bit of challenge for launching. Four more races were completed over two sessions today. The first session was Women, Youth and Great Grand Masters. The second session was Grand Masters and Women. Many sailors felt the breeze was a bit stronger offshore resulting in most boats extending out to the left off the start.


Tomorrow is the final day of racing for Women/Youth/Grand Masters and Great Grand Masters.
