The trade winds arrived just in time for the final day of racing at the Mark Foy Worlds in Fiji. With 20knots on the course the fleet finally got to unpack their little rigs for a day of thrills and spills.
It was an hour long battle to the top with lead changes the whole way but it was Compass Markets that reached the island first. The Australian team cut the corner a bit too close and stopped in no breeze. Yamaha and Smeg stayed in the breeze line and sailed around taking the lead.
Day two of racing started in similar conditions to yesterday. But as the racing was underway the breeze built to a steady 12 knots and swung to the right. It appeared to be the perfect conditions for the New Zealanders with Yamaha ending the day with two bullets and C-Tech claiming the third race.
Day two of the Mark Foy World Championship started off as a happy one for the Triple M and Alcatel teams as their container arrived after being delayed at sea. With little over an hour till the start to unpack their boats and get onto the course it was a close call for two teams.
Perfect conditions welcomed the fleet to Fiji for the Mark Foy Championship and round three of the Triple Crown Trophy. After settling in to Fiji time, racing got underway at 1:30pm in a 12knot sea breeze and two windward/leeward races.
