M30 Worlds Breeze, Breaks and Bumps on Day Two

by Bunny Wayt on 3 Oct 2008
Optimumm leads M30 Worlds on Day 2 Andrew Palfrey

Last night’s rain cleared out and the morning brought sunny skies accompanied by 14-17 knot shifty westerlies to Rhode Island Sound. Vincenzo Onorato’s Mascalzone Latino showed their championship winning style taking bullets in two of the day’s three races to pull within two points of Guy Stening’s Optimum.

With the breeze bows were buried in the waves, several boats suffered breakage and at least one skipper got bumped on the head. The forecast calls for 13-18 knots at start time tomorrow and is anticipated to build over the course of the day.
