Report from Greystones, Day Two
Tuesday morning dawned still windy and with a difficult sea state which the PRO thought might deter the less experienced or confident racers from racing so a decision was taken to postpone for a couple of hours and see if the wind would moderate which it was forecast to do.

Race 3 got underway still in a hiking breeze but by the time the second beat started all but the lightest teams were now underpowered. As the fleet sailed down the run the wind shut off completely and the PRO abandoned the race.
Two days down therefore and just two races completed.
