Good Racing in Brest - schedule completed

All sailors were keen to get on the water today as the forecast showed sunny weather and wind from the early morning.
A welcome change after the disappointment of having no wind on the previous day. The race committee planned 4 races and the first warning signal was set for 10:00. 

Arriving at the racecourse the windsurfers had a short wait for the first race and commenced with the action. Three races were sailed before the break and, as the sailors put it, “some really good, tactical starts” were concluded. After coming ashore, the wind dropped a little, but the conditions were still suitable to conduct another race for all fleets.  

The Division II is seeing some really fierce competition and the top three are just a couple points apart. Alain Cadre from France was most consistent today with three seconds and a first. He took the lead. His teammate Nicolas le Gal and Omar Juan Moreno from Spain will also be fighting for the gold tomorrow. 

The leaders have not changed in the Raceboard fleets. The French confirming that they are favourites on their own turf, Nicolas Huget has won all but one of his races and Jean Mailhos is doing even better with bullets all the way.      

The day ended with AGMs of both the DII and Racebaord classes going into the very late evening. Let’s hope everybody is rested before tomorrow as once again races start at 10:00. 

Today’s starts make it 6 in total for both women and men in the Raceboard fleets and 7 for DII.
