Marmaris International Race Week - After yesterday’s stormy weather, a glorious morning sun on the second day of racing found the sailors preparing their boats for today’s coastal race. Many of them visited the small coves in the area around the starting line, while patiently waiting for the wind to arrive.
The weather may have been lighter today, but spectators were treated to a full racing schedule, with some impressive battles between skilled, competitive crews. The Marmaris International Race Week already confirms its reputation as an event producing amazing sailing moments. All the way, and including the amazing finish to today’s races under a setting sun and against the backdrop of the stunning vistas offered by Turkey’s Mediterranean coast.
Many teams like ‘Sail & Sail’ carried on with their great performances from yesterday; as well as others, like ‘Turuncu’ in IRC 3 that really shined today. In the IRC 1 Charter, we saw some fierce battles, especially between ‘Laloba’ and ‘Boni Staf Pineapple’. ‘Flying Box’ was victorious in IRC 1, with ‘Strega’ a close second – and all this during one of the faster downwind legs so far in Marmaris.
