Second day in Ascona

Second day in Ascona

For the second day of this great championship, the organisers decide to run a variant of the previous day's course, including a series of triangles followed by a square. The wind, which had been blowing betwen 5 and 9 knots through the early afternoon, fills in progressively and turns 90 degrees to the right during the final heat, surprising even the best of the racers. And after 6 rounds of racing, the possible eventual winners begin to show clear water at the top of the leader board...
In the Under 15 section, it's the young Frenchman Brice Iriex taking command, ahead of the Italian Lorenzo Rossi end the Japanese Koji Kiuchi.
In the Under 12s, Swiss entrant Florin van Rommen and his American rival Geronimo Nores find themselves equal first ahead of another Japanese, Yoshihiro Hanada.
In the Open class, French racer Hugo Stubler leads from the Italian Giacomo Ferrari, followed by French girl Margot Vennin
