Moth Worlds 2016 @Japan: Day 2




Images: Junichi Hirai / Bulkhead Magazine. - Chris Rashley leads over Paul Goodison by 1pt overall  after 6 races. Argentine rookie Franco Greggi is excelling with a 12th overall, great performance for 'Mosta', the guy who brought the Moths to Argentina. Reading the conditions report is clear again that our local waters are great training 'grounds' to endure harsh conditions abroad, which are tougher to handle for those used only to sail lakes or mainly flat seas. He got some capsizes but managed top 10 overalls for the day. Excerpt from official report:
---
"..Today’s sailing conditions was strong southerly wind from the morning which is not ideal for non-experienced sailors to handle Moth. Therefore about 20 participants mainly who are not confident about sailing under this weather didn’t join today’s races. However, many of them rode on safety boats to support the competitions. They could have a close look at top sailors’ racing and learn a lot..."
