Qatar Optimist Cup 2013 second day again witnessed the light winds. However, two races were completed. The leaders of first day maintained their positions. Master Rasim Yasar from Turkey is leading, followed by Marsha Shahrin of Singapore and Nicolas Rolaz of Switzerland.

With four races scheduled, the race committee kicked off race one as early as they could today, and set a more even start line.

The fleet crossed the line in around eight knots of breeze and the majority headed to the more favoured right hand side of the course.

After rounding the top mark first, Algerian sailor Zakari Mokhatari led the fleet on the reach, and then a group of four spit away at the front on the downwind leg battling for top spot.

Zakari Mokhatari, Marsha Shahrin from Singapore, Rasim Yasar from Turkey, and Nicolas Rolaz from Switzerland fought down the run, but it was Rolaz who managed to round the leeward mark first.

On the upwind leg Rasim Yasar from Turkey managed to break free from the rest to finish in first place with Nicolas Rolaz not far behind.

Unfortunately, the wind did not last long, and after all the boats crossed the finish line it died completely. That was the bad news. The good news was that it made some time for swimming and enjoying the warm weather.

After long postponement the breeze finally filled in and race three was completed.
