At the wing mark in 3.5 knots

Hayden, John, Simon, Seth, Tim, Colin

They don't look like they've spotted the wing mark and have gone high, they've now seen it so the guys at the back could move to the front here.

Discussion is on shortening the course at the end of the next beat, but with the shifty wind, what direction to lay it!

The finish line is in and it's anyones race as they beat up to windward in the light and flukey conditions.

The club has put a lead boat out to show where the finish is

The Australians have drawn first blood - Hayden has won a nailbiting race from Simon Alan and Seth Dunbar

Race 2,
Simon Alan has taken an early lead, with Hayden having to reround for starting early - it is light again out there.

Still on the second reach, it's UK, UK, UK, AUS,AUS, AUS but they have just had mark readings of 0-3 knots at all marks over a space of 5 minutes.
The race committee has abandoned the race, it might sound tough to UK supporters with their boats in a clear lead but it is unsailable out there.

Stay tuned for Race 2 if the wind fills in

We're back.
As DC's go out for test sails (including my new boat USA239), our 6 IC's are heading for the startline of Heat 2.
It's a steady 10-13 knots at 190 degrees, and we are looking good for some great sailing.

Remember Australia needs just 1 more bullet to make history and win the International Challenge Cup

We won, the Australians have won the International Challenge Cup!

That is a clean sweep: World Champion, Junior World Champion and International Challenge Cup to the Aussies.
