Back from Spain and the story from Tavira is... more of the same on the water. 10-15, not a cloud in the sky and great racing! The current was even more of a factor today and created some big line sag opportunities for those who were on the ball. It was also a factor at the top mark where Ian - fresh off a 5th in race 6 - came storming along in 5th place at the 2 boat length circle but had called the layline a bit short and... came out in 40th. Ouch, especially since that was the topic of Coach Juan's chalk talk today but a teachable moment he won't repeat!
