Lesson 3 in Buenos Aires
Posted On:  16/11/2017 10:51:02

It had been suggested that the during the first 2 days the competitors had seen everything that Buenos Aires had to offer but on the third day the wind was different yet again - lesson 3! 

One of the guys here to prepare for the Olympic games is Jim Van Someren, following in the footsteps of his brother who gained a medal in the previous Youth Olympic games.  He said, "there are a lot of different conditions, every day something different, it is really hard."  His response to the question, "You have the know-how, you think you can do it?" was an emphatic "I hope so, yes!" Jim enjoyed the windy races on day one but he doesn't mind the different conditions. His aim is to qualify his country first and then work on his personal qualification.

Today's races involved working the sails hard until the wind got very light and shifty, meaning the end of racing for the day.  Sailors returned to shore, many hitching a ride on the ribs. The media team declared themselves the winners of this harbour race!

Heavy rain stopped play meaning 6 races completed by all fleets at this stage of the competition.
