29er Worlds day 2 - Varied conditions for the fleets

More racing in varied conditions for all the 218 teams competing at the 29er Worlds brought out the best in all.

On day 2 the morning fleets were treated to light conditions of six-eight knots in shifting winds as the sea breeze fought to establish itself. As the seabreeze did finally settle in bringing 12 knots, the afternoon sailors were treated to great planing conditions which skiffs were built for.

The green fleet were first off the beach making up for yesterday’s lost race, then everyone sailed three races a piece in their newly shuffled fleets based upon the overall results.

Spaniards Carlos Robles and Florian Trittle sailed a 2-1-1 today and seem to be in their ISAF Youth Worlds form. Trittle commented that they have 'speed and good starting. If you catch the big shift, you could do well. We’re pretty happy, the conditions were good although a bit light and a bit boring' he said with a laugh. When talking about the qualifying series he commented, 'we keep sailing; it’s one point less; every boat is a point and every point is important.' He further commented, 'We’re not nervous - we’re more calm and a bit confident.'


Americans Christopher Williford and Kai Freisecke sit in second overall with a 1-2-2 while Noppakao Poonpat and Steven Thomas from Thailand are third.

Racing for the qualifying fleet finishes tomorrow, Wednesday, July 25. Three days of the final series begin Thursday 26 July.
