London Olympics 2012: Sailing Olympics Newsletter - Day 2
Our apologies for the late newsletter, caused by a combination of a technical issue while sending and massive server traffic - we set a new record for visitors on Monday - which was half a lap ahead of numbers we have achieved previously.
The second day of the 2012 Olympic Sailing Regatta has concluded - sailed in much the same conditions as the first.
Today three more events got underway - the Mens Skiff (49er), and the Mens and Womens Singlehander (Laser and Laser Radial).
The contrast could not have been more different.
On the Nothe course, which is a natural stadium for sailing, the sun was out, the light beautiful, the colours bright, and the sailing great. Well, it looked great from the media boats, and we're sure the crowd on the grassy knoll, were treated to a very unique, and historic, sight.
Two races were staged for the 49ers, with plenty of razzle dazzle, which is part and parcel of skiff sailing.
They will move to the medal course tomorrow inside Portland Harbour, and for the first time in the regatta all three racing zones will be in operation.
The Mens and Womens Singlehander got underway, without the gentle introduction that the Finns, 49ers and Womens Match Racing had of racing on the inshore courses before heading out into Weymouth Bay.
Conditions were fresh, with winds of up to 20kts mentioned at this morning's briefing, and certainly there was plenty of sympathy for the competitors slogging around the big course, 1.6nm in diameter.
