The fleet endured a challenging first day with very shifty winds gusting sometimes over 30knots and unpredictable waves.

3 Races were held but only half the fleet finished the second race and didn’t contest the third.

As this report is written, the fleet is waiting on shore for the 25-35 knot winds to ease for the second days racing.

Results after day 1 can be found here (PDF format)
