The wind started off a bit lighter for Day 2 of the Gul Mirror Worlds, force 2-3 from the southwest and with the tide coming towards the end of the flood.  Race 4 was run using a triange-sausage course, with the windward mark near North Bank. Once again with bright sunshine & some breeze, competitors enjoyed some fantastic conditions in the Carrick Roads.

The Gul Mirror Worlds kicked off in a solid 3-4 from the south, the south west & the west, for the first hour the wind swung wildly as showers, clouds & clear skys rolled through. Evenually the wind settled into the south west, allowing IRO Jeff Martin and his team to set a windward - leeward course (yawn) and get the first race underway. The first attempt  at a start ended in a general recall, but the fleet got away on the second attempt under a 'P' flag.

Racing on Day 3 of the Gul Mirror Nationals took place in a south westerly force 4-5 which backed to the south and got stronger as the day progressed, rain, and a forecast of worse to come later in the afternoon. Once again there were plenty of capsizes and gear failures to keep the patrol boats busy.

Sailors arriving at Restronguet Sailing Club for the first day of the Gul UK Nationals found it was a bit mizzley, but after a short delay, the fleet launched and racing got under way in a solid 3-4 but with lots of lighter patches, sudden gusts and shifts which caused a few capsizes, lots of place changes and kept the Race Team busy. Racing on the windward-leeward course was held in the north end of the Carrick Roads and the ebbing spring tide caused a few some problems around the windward mark. The water was reported as 'quite warm' by those who capsized and 'quite shallow near the windward mark' by Steve Bland from Poole YC who capsized, got his mast stuck in the mud and bent it getting it out.
