Light winds as Optimist Worlds resumes
Published on July 23rd, 2013
The southerly wind arrived later than usual but with a steady 10-12 knots for the first group of starts. But as these first four races progressed it continually decreased. Towards the end of these first races the strong westerly wind arrived and all fleets were instructed to quickly head for shore.
Singaporean Loh Jia Yi, with a scoreline of 1-1-1-2-3-2 recorded a 23rd today but continues to lead, 5 points ahead of German Nils Sternbeck. Sternbeck today scored a good second, and third overall is Swiss Damian Suri, who finished fifth today.
Wednesday, if the wind conditions are more stable, the Race Committee hope to complete 3 races.
