Mistral Asian Continental Championship

Final results from the Mistral Asian Continental Championship.
Day 3

No Racing. Light Airs

Day 4

After a long wait, one race for all fleets was successfully completed in 5 to 6 knots of breeze. In fact Qu Chun called the racers out at about 1330hrs and held them in the starting area for 2 hours, knowing that when the wind came it was not going to stay for very long. In fact this was exactly waht happened. As soon as the last finisher crossed the line, as if by magic the wind diappeared very quickly. Mercifully, the current such that there was was across the course.

Day 5

A lot of effort was put in by all involved in the infrastructure and behind the scenes at this big event. This was finally rewarded handsomely by some good wind! 8>10knots at 0900hrs which built to 12 knots in the afternoon. The first race of the day was run in semi planing, mast track forward conditions. This built to full planing mast track back downwind reaches in the second and third. A series of 7 races out of a possible 10 max and a therefore a variety of conditions to test the racers fully. It has been a tough week for the organisers especially Qu Chun, the race officer but he has made the right calls.
