With a solid 15 Knots from the South, and many waves to catch, perfect racing conditions greeted the competitors for Day Two of the Brighton Land Rover Etchells Victorian State Championship run by Royal Brighton YC.

Unlike yesterday, two races were completed without the black flag ever being seen! By the end of the day there was a complete change to the leader board. Tom King skippering Iron Lotus showed how it is done with two bullets moving he and his crew to first overall by a handy six point buffer. Our Thing, skippered by David Turton, with crew of Klaus Lorenz and Josh Torpy from North Sails also had a good day, with two third places resulting in a second place overall after the drop. Third place is occupied by Chris Hampton and his crew of Sam Haines and Charlie Cumbley on Tango II. It all sets it up for a great last day, where a Sou'sou'wester of up to 20 knots and 1.5m seaway will make for a big day at the office for sailors and Race Management alike.

All the oils (yes, if you're Australian you'll shave your head and dance) So coconut oil seemed entirely fitting for this final in our SailGP series, seeing as it has loads of good cholesterol, and now that the heat is off after the final has been run, it can return once more to a solid state.
