Day 2 practice afternoon

Day 2 continued…. Crew met at the boat at 3pm as the sea breeze finally built. Headed round to “Bomb Alley” just off Cannigione, where 18-22 knots was in action as a prelude to Thursday’s forecast Mistral. Big grins from the helm as we sliced upwind, and then we moved to doing laps of the bay. Plenty of sets, gybes, douses, and tacks were thrown at the crew, and we continued to learn from the foul ups. Dousing a 400sq m chute in big breeze was a slight challenge…. Back to the villa just in time for dinner. Tomorrow will be a long day – big wind and the long distance race.
