ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères 2014 - The 1,111 sailors from 59 nations arose this morning, greeted by sunshine and clear blue skies. The one problem, the early morning breeze that has been evident over the opening two days of racing at ISAF Sailing World Cup Hyères was absent.

As the day goes on it is expected to pick up with anything between 13-17 knots expected. With a smooth sea state and one metre swell day two’s buzz words 'Champagne sailing' and 'glamour conditions' could be rolling of the tongues of the world’s finest competing in Hyères.
