On day two of the Techno 293 Europeans in Eilat, a further dramatic change in wind conditions affected the racing schedule. Israel command first place in only three divisions, but increase their overall dominance in the total podium positions!

The unpredictable light winds of day one gave way to no wind halfway through the morning session on day two. Only the Youth Boys (under 17) were able to complete their scheduled two races before the Principal Race Officer called a halt to proceedings and abandoned the race for Girls and Junior (u15) boys.

Quite rightly the sailors were sent ashore to wait for suitable conditions for racing to come back.

Eventually conditions improved, with the (unusual) south wind kicking in, and the final race of the day got underway.
Significant changes emerged at the conclusion of race 4 in the Junior division, but nothing changed at the top for the Youths.
