After two days of excellent sailing conditions - both of which started with strong winds that moderated over the day - the Wednesday Lay Day has provided an ideal opportunity for crews to kick back and relax.

Winds are predicted to be light for the remainder of Race Week. Here are a selection of images from Days 2 and 3, shot by Crosbie Lorimer of Bow Caddy Media.
