Peak-Ryzex Albacore Internationals 2017 at the WPNSA - Day 2

Day 2 of the Peak-Ryzex sponsored Albacore Internationals, incorporating the UK Nationals, was sailed inside the harbour to ensure none of the 53 teams were worn out after a tough first day.

With less sunshine and a lighter breeze the sailors enjoyed two races. The most consistent boat so far sailed by Tom Lonsdale and Steve Graham in 8235 took a first and a second to sit at the top of the leader board with USA's Barney Harris and Dave Smith in 8258 sneaking into second overall with a second and a fifth closely followed by Chris Turner and Alex Hayman in 8236. Local sailor Crispin Read-Wilson with crew Fraser Earle won the last race and many of the sailors commented on how tight the racing is with one mistake costing a number of places.

At the daily prize giving Ovington Top Ten Hats were handed out to the new qualifiers and there were two P&B jibs in the tally draw along with a host of other prizes.

Racing continues today with the conclusion of the UK Nationals and the start of VR Sport Media on the water filming followed by a BBQ and a chance for a few drinks with a lay day tomorrow!
