Strutt & Parker UK Mirror Nationals - day 2

After a long wait ashore for the sea breeze to start to fill, the fleet were relased and towed and sailed down to the race area against the first of the flood tide. With such a light wind and strong tide it was only just possible to cross the start line.

The pin end was, once again, the place to be. After one general recall and under a black flag Martin &  Henry Jones nailed the start ahead of Chris & Alex Balding. On the beat to the 1st mark Melissa Hepell & Amelie Hiscocks got up into second place, after which the boats just extended their lead and finished in that order.

After a short delay and a wind shift which would have put the start line in even stronger tide the remaining races were postponed to the final day.
