- Q1 Yellow Fleet Live Here (Abandoned)

Hard day for the Yellow fleet, 2 races abandoned and several starts. At least those that were having bad results got unharmed although in contrast to those who finished first the last abandoned race.

In the Blue fleet all quite even in the top ten with Tornado & Italian F18 Champ Vicenzo Sorrentino sailing with Barbara Rinauro are first overall in their fleet. Bissaro-Sicouri got 4-11 but got a dsq in the last. 

Top Hobie 16 and Panamerican sailor, Ven Yamil Saba with an excellent debut on the N17 scoring a bullet in the 2nd race. Arg Carranza-Blando were struggling bad in the first race, dead last but calm and easy going for the layline in the first downwind they manage to recover and ended 11th. 


Quite tricky conditions on the current , it was clear in the Tracking where ground speed were 2knots against 5-6knots in the opposite border. Not much left on overall results as the Yellow fleet is yet to complete a race. Images Lauren Morels & Thom Touw , Full Gallery at facebook.com/NacraSailing
