Not everyone had such a clean day. Lord of the Sail, Asia were quick in the first two races as the Russians took two second places. But they had forestay problems which forced them out of the final heat and drops them to third overall in the standings behind Finnish team, Åländska Segelsällskapet.
The Swedish crew representing Kungliga Svenska Segelsällskapet lies in fourth overall while Frederikshavn Sejlklub only completed the first race. In the second heat they lost the gennaker over the side during a manoeuvre, resulting in the sail getting caught under the boat and ripping in a number of places. While they soldiered on without the sail for a while, the Danes decided to pull out of the rest of the day and investigate ways of getting the sail repaired.
This, after all, is only training racing before the main event, the 1,000 nautical mile Nord Stream Race which begins this Sunday.
for the results.
