14:25 | meanwhile read Jespers report on Day 1-\\\\"Last time I as in Sopot was probably 8 years ago and my impression was not great at all. We sat in rain and of shore winds for 5 days ...However, this time its fantastic. We have sun and wind and the first day of the competition saw 4 races being completed...\\\\" more on -

13:46 | 5 minutes to AP down on the start boat- the wind is lighter than yesterday 9/10 knots and a little less nearer the beach. But the wind looks OK in the course area.

13:40 | AP down on beach - we had no wind this morning, but the forecast was good for sea breeze in the afternoon ..and the wind is building.
The plan is for 3 races back to back - yesterdays outer loop course is replaced by a windward /leeward course.
