The wind was light and marginal all morning, and it was not until after four in the afternoon that it picked up a couple of knots to make racing possible.

Nine heats were run and a few surprises happened. Antoine got stuck in a lull and missed qualification for the second round, and Kevin Pritchard missed out too finishing 5th in his heat in the second round.

The funny thing of the day (not so funny for him though) happened when Angulo, leading his heat, didn’t gybe at the last mark (getting mixed up about which course he was sailing), and therefore also failed to qualify.

Today the wind is still light, but for sure some action will happen here in Sylt. Keep tuned for more info.
