The warm sunny morning lulled us into a false sense of security that it was going to be a light wind sailing day again. As forecast, the strong southerly breeze arrived just in time for race briefing, heralding a full day of great sailing to round off the series.......( more )

Day 2 in Brisbane became a spectacular day with wind building up from 12 to 25 knots during racing. After the first race of the Techno fleet, some went ashore to downsize sails. It made no difference as the wind was just too strong and only 2 in the fleet finished. Race 3 was abandoned.
However, the Techno Plus fleet proved they were worthy of sailing an 8.5 and finished all 3 races.
Max van der Zalm from New Zealand with Australian Alex Halank hot on his heels managed to win 2 out of the 3. Alex won the last race showing the battle amongst the 2 of them is not over yet, Max still leading with 5 points after 6 races.
