F18 Australian Nats 2018: Day 2




No pics available. Top one is still from anothe Video by creativedroneworx.com. Check footage above to see increasing windy conditions , same as yesterday.

Day 2: Total domination for James Clark & Max Putnam (Edge/ Goodall DS) today, 3 bullets to take the lead after the first discard. 5 first places out of six races.
Second place overall for Gavin Colby /7 Jayden Dalton (Scorpion/Brewin boomles DS) , another good day for Gavin sailing in the breeze with Jayden Dalton That's the beauty of the Open format which needs to be implemented in the Nacra 17 too.

Sadly they had a capsize , relegating some key points, check video above.  Still many have capsized in at least one race, including the leaders.

Third place overall for Brett Burvill & Ryan Duffield (Edge / 1D ) . The formers Aus Nats champs are not winning races but keeping an average to stay in the top three.  The new Jib & snuffer  system are not providing an edge in the breeze and they are surely getting the new equipment trimmed.
Will be inteesting to see some races in the mid range to asses if this new aero setup is providing any advantage.
