The young sailors in the Optimists, Sabots and International Cadets had testing conditions for their opening races day, with the NNW winds gusting to 25 knots. However, the breeze eased to 10-12 knots later in the morning, although freshening to 17 knots for the final race, giving a total of eight races over the days of intensive competition.
