Tough first day with very light winds and the strong tidal flow the Tauranga is known for causing challenges for all the sailors.
Alex Norman sits on top with two wins from two races closely followed by Sean Kensington with a 2,1.
On the schools side Murray’s Bay Intermediate currently leads with a total of 8 ahead of Birkdale.
Race 1 saw white fleet miss the cut off time by the slimmest of margins so while the Open Skiff and Opti Pink fleets got to go in Opti White fleet had to race again to rerun their earlier disallowed R1. Impressive that in challenging conditions the race committee got all races away. Good luck to all for tomorrow’s Day 2
