Two races have been completed in the ORC International World Championship, and provisional results indicate George Andreadis' GS 42R Meliti IV leads Class A on scores of 3-1. In Class B, Guiseppe Guiffre's M37 Low Noise won yet another race to have double-bullets on his scorecard.
Conditions were near-perfect today, with a southeast breeze settling in to 10-15 knots in strength, but with enough shifts and puffs to make for interesting tactics for the fleet. As the detailed Performance Curve Scoring results indicate, racing in Class A is particularly close, with the top five places in Race 2 finishing to within a minute in corrected time.
As inshore races are completed on this first day of the 2009 ORC World Championship, results will be posted on the ORC website home page at www.orc.org. After protests, the day's final results and an analysis will also be posted at www.orc.org.
