Johno Fullerton reports from the race course with 15 minutes to the Gold fleet start: “There’s a patchy 12 knots, maybe gusting 14. Everyone is foiling. There are a few wind streaks near the windward mark, which is closest the Hayling Beach shore, which should make things interesting on the mark roundings.”

Day 6 Morning Report

Once again there’s unbroken sunshine at Hayling Island and Chimet is showing 16 knots, gusting 19 from the North East.

We’re onto day 2 of finals racing with the Gold fleet starting at 10am and the Silver fleet at 10.30am so as to make the most of the morning breeze.

After 2 Gold fleet races, Chris Rashley (GBR) is leading Nathan Outteridge (AUS) by 3 points. It’s the penultimate day and things are getting tense at the top!

There’s also the #MothAshes to be settled. This is the trophy that Great Britain and Australia battle for, where the lowest aggregate score of the top 5 boats from their respective nations wins. Australia are the current holders, Great Britain currently lead on their home waters…
