Day 2: wind is peaking up

Day 2 of The Techno Windsurfing World Championships saw San Francisco once again deliver near perfect conditions for racing.

With three races sailed the day prior day two's action was limited to two races. Racing got underway by noon time and with a fresh 18-20 mph sea breeze once again blowing across both courses the two races were quickly wrapped up allowing for the sailors and their families to have the rest of the day to check out San Francisco. Currents also played a factor in the racing on this day with a nearly 3 knot flood tide pushing eastward on the sailors bows as they headed up wind.

The infamous San Francisco fog made its presence felt as it lapped at the Golden Gate Bridge all day long never quite making it over the race course much to the delight, and the warmth, of both spectators and competitors alike.The sailors were again split amongst the two race courses with both fleets doing 2 laps on a windward leeward course. The leeward mark is actually a gated mark allowing for some strategy to come into play as the sailors need to decide which side of the course they want be on as they head back up to the windward mark. While heading to shore does offer some relief from the current it is clear there is better wind pressure on the outside of the course. - All photos www.waterhound.com-
