Dutch have opened up a HUGE lead, but can they make it stick?

Stern cams make me a bit queasy

Looks like a replay of the last Olympics; a poor start for Ben but it just fired him up and look what happened

Wind is a mess, but it is the same wind for all - so work with it

 

Very impressed with the speed of the spinnaker lifts and drops in the Yngling races

Ainslie leading race 2

 

 

The Dutch Yngling team have never sailed together before this event - and they are leading race 2 by minutes

They've not sailed together in actual competion, but they had many imes during the training/selection process. An interesting experiment in putting together a team- they used three boats, three bow, three middle and three helms, and chopped and changed repeatedly.

I never said it was wonderful, I just said I thought they'd get to race. But race two didn't look too bad.
