Racing for the second day of the J-Cup 2013, being held in Plymouth Sound, was delayed by lack of breeze. Racing got underway in the early afternoon, once a light and just race-able breeze stabilized. All classes got one good race in but the second was abandoned, as light rain killed off the gradient wind completely.

And finally in international sailing news: In an outcome that should surprise absolutely no one, Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) today beat Luna Rossa Challenge to win the Louis Vuitton Cup (LVC) on San Francisco Bay amidst thick fog that no doubt complicated tactics.
