Kicking up dirt at Landsailing World Championship
Published on July 16th, 2014
Austin, Nevada (July 16, 2014) – With the completion of the International 5.6 Mini Yacht portion of the regatta yesterday, today’s action featured nine other classes ranging from small one-design Manta Singles to the sleek and very fast FISLY Class 3 and 2 land yachts.
After light winds in the morning, the velocity built quickly in the afternoon and remained very good for the entire day, enabling most classes to complete two full races. International pilots have quickly learned dry lake sailing and have had good results in most all classes.
Everyone is hoping for continuing good winds during the final three days of the regatta, which ends on Saturday.
Race dates: International 5.6 Mini, July 13 to 15
Race dates: All others, July 15 (pm) to 19
