The second day of racing in the Japanese waters of Koajiro Bay proved challenging to the Race Committee of the 2013 IFDS Blind Sailing World and International Championships.
Variable light winds were slow to steady in direction in the morning, and obliged moving marks and changing courses as the day progressed.

Despite the difficulties, three races were completed, for a total of seven races, allowing sailors to drop their worst score. Numerous protests the previous day had changed the scoreboard, and day two further shuffled the results, which are available here.

In the B1 division, Sharon Grennan and Vicki Sheen (GBR) comforted their lead by scoring third in the first race and then winning the two following races. In the B2 fleet Lucy Hodges and Martin Phillips (GBR) did likewise, scoring 2-1-1, while the B3 team from New Zealand, Tony Holmes and Benjamin Geddes continued their series with three bullets.

Day 3 is scheduled to be a lay day after seven great races.
