All ready for day 2

In less then two hours race three will start.
Wind is expected to be slightly less than yesterday, when both Mischa and Stevie were a class apart downwind. Most sailors have winglets now and the majority of the fleet was trapezing downwind. A big difference compared to the last worlds where only four boats had winglets.
Trapezing downwond is fast and fun. We will definitely see more flying boats next year.
With the J-boards one has some moments of continuous flight, but even when not flying you can sail deeper than with the C-boards. It needs some practice to get the most out of it, but Mischa, Manolo, Jack,Bruce and Stephen love it downwind.
