Day Two (Tuesday) at the warm-up event for the Laser/ILCA 4 World Championships proved to be a tricky one for most of the sailors with consistency hard to find in a fickle 4-5 knots of wind.

On the positive side, the fleet was joined by four more sailors providing extra competition and bringing it up to a total of 56 boats.

Sienna Wright (HYC) scored a 22nd 17th and 26th in what were very difficult conditions. She’s currently discarding the 26th place but she has slipped to 11th overall and is now the 2nd placed girl behind Talia Hamlin of the USA.

Daniel O’Connor (RSGYC) slipped from 11th place overnight to 13th place with a 23rd place in the first race of the day, followed up by a 12th and a 17th. Krzysztof Ciobrowski (RSGYC) had the toughest day and slipped to 45th place overall.

The final day’s racing is scheduled for today, Wednesday with the first of two races scheduled to start at 2 pm. The regatta has been the ideal preparation for next week's World Championships.
