A light offshore breeze greeted competitors at the start of day two of the raceboard world championships but it was looking good for racing. The plan was for two races back to back, a short break, then one or maybe two races in the afternoon. However, with the wind increasing a little, 3 back to back races were completed today with only a short break on the water.
Patrik Pollak (SVK 1) has found his form, winning all three of today's races which puts him at the top of the leaderboard, 1 point ahead of yesterday's leader, Curro Manchon (ESP 9). Toni Colomar (ESP 66) maintains his third position but the gap is widening. Juha Blinnikka (FIN 6) is first Grandmaster in 9th place overall and fellow countryman, Kai Mannisto (FIN 50) is first Veteran.
Brit Harriet Ellis (GBR 607) heads the ladies fleet with two bullets today against Maria Domingues' (ESP 11) one win which puts her clear ahead by one point. These two are clearly going to have a tough battle for this championship title.
Over in the youth fleet, Santi Arteaga (ESP 1) has a perfect score winning all three of today's races. He is now 5 points clear ahead of Daniel Blinnikka (FIN 5) who is three points ahead of Benjamin Coisne (FRA 259) in third place. Toni Bonet (ESP 70) is first junior - on the same points as Benjamin but in fourth place after the discard rule comes into play.
The first possible start tomorrow is 12.00 - and possibly we will do the long distance race.
