Nacra 17 Europeans - Day 2 in Gdynia

 
Spain's Echavarri / Pacheco, and New Zealand's Jones / Saunders dominated their respective fleets

The Spanish and Kiwi teams posed 4 and 5 points respectively from three races. Kiwi crew Saunders said it was all about working the left side. “There were times when it was OK to be right, but it was always good to be left,” he said.

Britain's Ben Saxton and Nikki Boniface dropped out of the lead and sit in third, but tied on ten points with Echavarri / Pacheco and Italy's Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti.

The leading four have a five point lead over fifth placed Riley Gibbs and Louisa Chafee of the USA, who picked-up five places, with Australia's Jason Waterhouse and Lisa Darmanin breaking into the top ten in sixth place.

Nathan and Haylee Outteridge (AUS) remain in contention with their new brother-sister team, the pair in eighth, despite a big scare today in the final race.

Haylee fell into the water while setting up for a gybe and was struck on the back of her leg by a rudder. She was bruised by the blade, but able to continue.
