Day 2 – Sunnyvale again tops the overall standings at the conclusion of the second and penultimate day of the 2021 Melges 24 Canadians. Fraser McMillan’s crew are locked in a battle for first with Mike Bond’s Recidivist, who took the overall lead for a short time during the day, and has whittled down the lead to just two points. Seven races were held in a stable but light onshore 5-8 knot breeze, with slight oscillations, velocity gradients and current making the racing ever challenging.
Goes to Eleven, apparently stuck in third gear, remains in a solid third with a string of thirds with the occasional fourth and second. Rounding out the results is Phil Harland’s PCH in fourth and Rich Mundell’s Psyclone in fifth with three points separating the two.
Lighter winds forecast for today so hopefully a few more races to decide the final standings.
