Another light wind day on Montague Bay for the SSL qualifying series. Three races we held in a 4-6 knot wind from the south. No shortage of sun and humidity out on the race track!
Joschen Schuemann, three time Olympic Gold Medalist, of Germany, had the best day with a 5, 6, 1. Xavier Rohart retained his overall lead in the qualifying series while Diego Negri ITA retained second and the polish team of Kusznierewicz/Zycki moved up to third overall.
Brian and I had a good day with scores of 4, 6, 12. We had good starts and speed upwind which got us to the first windward mark in the top 5 in each race. My downwind speed is still lacking but I am working on it. We moved up one place to 8th.
Two more races to go in the qualification series. The scores are still very tight so we are in no way safe from dropping out of the top 11 which is what is required to move on to the quarter finals Saturday.
The forecast for tomorrow is northeast winds around 10 knots.
