Day 2 saw the breeze build with the approaching cold front and by the top mark we were seeing over 20 knots of wind. This made for an exciting downwind run with our A2 in the flat water and shifty wind. Unfortunately two minor breakdowns on the boat cost us a few places and we slipped to 7th by the end of the race.
In between races the team hustled to change mainsails, fix the two breakdowns and still make it to the right end of the start line. We caught the first shift and didn't look back posting a second in race 4.
Today is going to see slightly lighter winds from the west which should see the course be flat water and again very shifty and dynamic.
More to come.
