Day two of racing was quite similar to the day before but in reverse order with the weather and the groups on the water. The day started sunny with light breezes and the competition started for the girls in nice 12 knot planing conditions. ......( more )

Something for everyone on day 1. After a thunderstorm during the night, the day dawned grey, damp and a little bit cold but by the end it turned out to be a beautiful day in Sopot. Conditions started light with 6 to 8 knots but ramped up to 12-14 knots with gusts up to 20 plus knots......( more )

The beach is packed with competitors and spectators enjoying the warm July sunshine. The Techno Class is honoured to have the presence of ISAF President, Carlo Croce, who said, "this is amazing given the current economic situation". ......( more )
