Four races apiece on day two of the Raceboard Youths and Masters Worlds in Medemblik – the maximum allowed in one day – and proof that the organisers at the international sailing centre can deliver.[more]

First race of the day at 10.00 started in a good 14 knots. It didn’t meet the expectations of “Super Wednesday” with the 16-26 knots forecast yesterday but, after a morning averaging 10-15 knots, gusts of up to 24 knots were recorded in the afternoon.

Class President, Paul Leone, who had his moment of glory at the top of yesterday’s leaderboard, has now been relegated as the first discard comes into play and others find their form.  Mark Kay (GBR 365) now heads the masters fleet – but has yet to score a bullet and is only 1 point ahead of Pedro Moura (POR 73) who has two wins under his belt, and also Juha Blinnikka (FIN 6). 

Franck Loup has moved up to fourth place with some good results having discarded his worst.  Once the next discard kicks in, Alex Buchau (ESP 36) currently in 5th is one to watch as he took three wins yesterday.

First lady is Maria Antonia Dominguez Gutierrez (ESP 11).

Over in the Youth Fleet, yesterday’s leader Debeune has also been kicked out as Bautista Saubidet Birkner (ARG 401) moves up from fourth to the top.  He really needs to watch his back as Daniel Blinnikka (FIN 5) has gone from third to second place with two race wins and is just one point behind.  Artem Murashev (RUS 54) has slid down to third and is eight points behind.

First lady Anastasya Valkevich (BLR 4) took the first bullet yesterday and is sixth overall.  Huig-Jan Tak (NED 465) second in the first race of the day won the last race.  With plenty more racing on the cards there are many changes to come on the leaderboard.

RESULTS: Masters after 6 / Youths after 6
