ISAF Match Racing World Championship

Started yesterday on the Verkh-Neyvinskiy pond near Ekaterinberg in Russia, the 12 skippers have had a tough start to their individual bids for the World Championship.
The first day yesterday was marred by extremely light winds and 35C heat and until 5.00pm not a single flight had been sailed. In the evening however, two flights were sailed, still leaving much to catch up on today.

The weather situation was much improved today but still changeable. Flights started in an early afternoon fresh breeze that brought with it thunderstorms and hard rain before the wind eventually dropped off this evening.

So far, six full flights have been sailed and the current joint leadership is held between the Current number 1 on the ISAF World Match Race Rankings, Karol JABLONSKI (POL) and the current ISAF World Match Race Champion, Ed BAIRD (USA). However, neither has a completely unbeaten record and are sitting on 75% record so far.
