The warm up event had no wind on Saturday, but Sunday, it came through strong. Most guys went on 12s for the first race and the wind build from 10 to 18 knots by the end of the race.
Second race, some sailors on 11s and some on 10s. Wind picked up even more to about 20-25 knots.
Third race windy as well.
Fourth and last race, would be the deciding race for top 5, Jesper and I where fighting for

BRA999 | 1st February 2011 (01:15:20)

the top spot, since I had two bullets and one second and Jesper one Bullet and two seconds.Jesper started port and managed to stay in the lead and finish about 5 meters ahead of me, great battle in the water between the top 10, With Jesper winning over the tie brake since he won the last race. Pinheiro and Sam Parker and Sean O'brien battled out for third place, and always close together.
Close to 50 competitors showed up for the warm up event and more should come for the Oceanic.

it is possible - but the organiser needs a bit more financial support before they can confirm.
