Etchells World Championship
Rosignano Solvay, Italy

Only one race was sailed on the second day of Etchells World Championship held in Italy at Yacht Club Cala de' Medici, Rosignano, Tuscany.
The start of the first race of the day had to be postponed due to lack of wind at scheduled time, but after about three hours the start of the race got underway in a westerly wind up to 10 knots. The race committee tried to fire a second race but at that moment the wind was very shifty and it was not possible to go on with the program.

The fight at the start was tough, five yachts, including James Howells winner of yesterday second race, were disqualified under U flag.

Greek skipper Goerge Andreadis with American tactician Jeff Madrigali soon got the lead and held it until the finishing line.

The leader of the results after three races is still the American skipper Marvin Beckmann on The Martian.

Racing resumes on Wednesday at 12:00 local time.

Top Three
1. The Martian (USA) - Marvin Beckmann - 13pts
2. 1382 (AUS) - Peter Chappell - 21pts
3. The Rat (AUS) - Grantham Kitto - 21pts
