A long day in the heat today. It was 44C (which is about 107F) 10 miles North of here today.

We had a light seabreeze…enough to get three races in. It is 1930 and we are heading back to the hotel.

The Brits on TeamOrigin are on fire so far here with all their finishes in the top 3.

We had two good races; 2nd in the first race and 4th in the third race. In the second race we were over early at the start and had to go back and restart. We caught up to the tailenders at the first mark but only managed to pass one boat by the finish.

All day our speed was good in the 8-11 Southwesterly breeze.

We are currently 5th overall, one point out of fourth. Still a lot of racing left and plenty of opportunity to move up and down.

Tomorrow the committee is talking about one windward leeward race and then the coastal race.

The forecast for tomorrow is for moderately strong Northeasterly winds so that will be welcome by the fleet after these light air, baking contests.
