The SIM 30th Singapore Open Asian Windsurfing Championships got off to a great start with North Easterly winds between 10 to 15 knots. Shifty wind conditions in the 2nd and 3rd race resulted in challenging sailing conditions for everyone. The start of the 3rd race saw wind speeds drop to 5 knots, and many competitors had to change their strategy.
In the Bic Techno 293 category, Thailand's sailors ended the day with 1st position in both the U-17 boys and girls classes.
Day 2 of racing began with clear skies and scorching heat. For the first race, the wind was North East at 3-7 knots. The 2nd race of the day was in slightly better conditions as wind picked up to about 8-10 knots. However, racing was stopped at 3:30pm due to inclement weather.
Phusiri Sirichai in the Boys now has a very strong lead with a perfect 4 points after five races (one discard). The Hong Kong sailor Li Hong Lam in second place is just one point in front of fellow countrymen Lee Chun Ting and Man Ngo Hin, both on 11 points.
Also in the Girls fleet, Thailand's Krongkaew Sakufeang has a perfect 4 points at the top of the leaderboard. Ngai Wai Yan and Roxy Hui, both from Hong Kong, are in second and third places, separated by just one point.
