Record-breaking day on water - ISAF Worlds

Record-breaking day on water - ISAF Worlds

Tuesday, September 16, 2014 - Santander, Spain

Today consisted of a range of big swell, plenty of current and breeze that ranged from 080 to 210 with as little as 1 knot to as much as 18 knots during attempted racing hours. Several fleets spent multiple hours on the water waiting for breeze with a few veteran coaches reporting record breaking hours on the water (11 straight) with a coachboat refuel in order. All fleets managed to get at least once race in with a mixed bag of results. Finn, 49er, FX & Nacra’s all had their debut on the water today. The Canadian FX fleet had a solid day on the course with Rafuse/Boyd posting a 2, 19. 6. Erin Rafuse and Dannie Boyd were unlucky with a protest this evening which resulted in a DSQ but still maintain good position in 14th overall. Nacra team Ramsay/Girke & Finn sailor Douglas also came out fighting sitting in 15 & 17 respectively.

All sailors were early to bed to rest up for a more promising day of consistent breeze tomorrow. RSX fleets split off to gold and silver fleets while the remainder of the fleets still battle in qualifiers for another day. Laser & Radial fleets head into finals with their event wrapping up on the 18th. #praytowindgods
