Gul Mirror Worlds - Day 2
The wind started off a bit lighter for Day 2 of the Gul Mirror Worlds, force 2-3 from the southwest and with the tide coming towards the end of the flood. Race 4 was run using a triange-sausage course, with the windward mark near North Bank. Once again with bright sunshine & some breeze, competitors enjoyed some fantastic conditions in the Carrick Roads.
In the race, 'Wave Catcher Too' sailed by Cullen & Rowan Hughes from Balmoral SC won ahead of Dave & Imogen Wade from Northampton SC with 'YOLO', sailed by Chris & Alex Balding from Island Barn SC was third.
Race 5 also got away cleanly under a 'P' flag. The wind had picked up a bit, and with the tide starting to ebb it was a bit choppy in places. This time it was Dave & Imogen who won with 'Yeti', sailed by Angus & Lou-Lou Hemmings from Stokes Bay SC second and 'Platypus' sailed by Simon & Tyson Barwood from the Royal Freshwater Bay YC third.
Race 3, using a windward-leeward course got away at the second attempt under a 'U' flag. By this time the wind had increased further to a good 3-4. 'The Bootle Bumtrinket', sailed by Scarlett Shepherd & Imogen Bellfield from Restronguet SC & Itchenor SC led from start to finish with overnight leader Cullen & Rowan 2nd and Angus & Lou-Lou third.
With six races completed, the first discard kicked in. This allowed Dave & Imogen to drop their OCS from Day 1 to move up to second, behind Cullen & Rowan with Simon & Tyson third. So it's Aussie, GBR, Aussie going into Day 3 - which is forecast to be very stormy. Full results here. Photos of all the Gul Mirror Worlds action on Photolounge .
