Whipping winds highlighted a dramatic day 3 at the 2011 Techno World Championships.
The day came in like a lamb and went out like a lion as the San Francisco fog bank upped the game today hurling consistent 20-22knot winds at the fleet of competitors. This is spirited bunch however and they came ready for action taking all San Francisco could throw at them and coming back for more. Blue skies and mild 15-20mph winds greeted the sailors as they got ready for the day's action. The flood tide was once again in play and this time, like a tractor beam, it sucked the marine layer in through the Golden Gate dropping temperatures and increasing wind speeds to 22 knots and beyond by the midpoint of the day's first racing action.
The day's agenda called for three races to be sailed comprising the 6th, 7th , and 8th races of the regatta and by now fitness was beginning to play a factor after three days of continuous racing in solid 20 mph winds. (pictured below Stratis Doukas of Greece takes to the air)
