|GDYNIA, POLAND-(9-6-2005) The second day of races was sunny with declining wind (from 15 to 5 knots). Although the temperature made us wear some
additional wet suit.|
Today three races took place. The fight before starting signal was really obstinated. During the starting procedure in 5th man's race 14 black flag false starts were commited (inter alia: FRA 2631, SUI 51, FRA 2620, AUS 351, POL 7...)!
Group phase is to be ended tomorrow. The one race only is left until the finals. Results didn't vary much from yesterday's. 2004 Olympic silver medallists, GBR 817 - Nick Rogers, Joe Glanfield keep on leading in men's classification.
They won the last race and were second in the first one. In the women’s fleet first position is occupied by Marcellien de Koning and Lobke Berkhout, NED 11 (they won 4 races). The best Polish team constantly is time Katarzyna Tylińska, Zuza Gładysz, reaches the 5th place.
