The RS:X athletes at the southern end of Port Phillip Bay likewise endured the challenging and unpredictable breeze. Like the Radials, they experienced dramatic shifts and gusts that were hard to identify.

U.S. Women's RS:X athlete Farrah Hall (Annapolis, Md.) said, "In short, Sorrento delivered another complicated day, with a new wind direction. Patience and waiting for opportunities was the name of the game, but the wind was so gusty and shifty that sometimes even the best strategies failed."

Hall's only solace was going herself plenty of room to roll with the punches of frequent gusts and shifts. "I didn't have good starts all day so it put me behind again, which was disappointing. However, during the race, I had space to sail smart, hook into gusts and shifts, and wait for the opportunity to make up points."

U.S. Men's RS:X athlete Pedro Pascual (West Palm Beach, Fla.) agreed that taking opportunities where you could find them was key today, "I was hesitating a bit when choosing my lanes and which side to play. I'm looking forward to changing the way I'll approach each race and planning on being more aggressive making those decisions."

Pascual currently stands in 32nd, a few positions behind fellow U.S. athlete Geronimo Nores (Miami Beach, Fla.). Nores is currently in 24th and in the Women's fleet, Hall is ranked 35th. The three U.S. competitors are looking forward to two more days of racing on Port Phillip Bay. Tomorrow, three more races are scheduled to start at 1:00 p.m., local time.
