Sail-World.com : Magic Marine RS500 World Championships day 2

Magic Marine RS500 World Championships day 2

The Magic Marine RS500 World Championships have now completed the second day of racing which brought totally different wind conditions and introduced a mix of top contenders.

Alex Mobbs and Bryan Taylor proved they’re not just made for the high winds, winning both races. However, they had to fight for their wins with the racing incredibly close and hard fought right to the finish line.

Around sixty boats started the two races that were held inside the harbour. The light, shifty conditions meant that it could have been any of the top ten boats making it over the finish line in first position. Significant wind shifts during the starting sequence made it difficult for race officer Arky to get the second start underway, with two last-minute postponements and, finally, the black flag coming out again.

Showing good, consistent form in the difficult conditions were team Hong Kong Lars Schkade and Justin Tse who claimed two third positions with exceptional downwind speed. Fellow team mates Cosmas Grelon and Will Stephens along with Brits Mike Saul and Meg Fletcher, and 2010 World Champions Tim Wilkins and Heather Martin also did well.

Close racing throughout the fleet was shown by the fact that the whole fleet finished within five minutes of each other.
