The Derwent River again turned on the perfect weather, with warm temperatures and sunny skies. The second day of the World Championship was sailed in North Easterly winds with average speeds between eight and ten knots.
The fleet had trouble getting away cleanly in both of today's heats, with a general recall before each race finally got underway.
The Irish have come to Hobart with gusto. As well as the performing well in the International Mirror World Championship, Irish Dragon Crimaera is also sailing well in the Australian Dragon Championships, which are the lead up to the World Dragon Championship.
The Irish were dominant in the Worlds today. Gee-Czar (Christopher Clayton and Craig Martin) placed first in Heat 3, and was still showing off great form in Heat 4 by placing second.
Australian Mirror Stealth (David Moore and Matthew Wilson) placed second in Heat 3, but were disqualified after being not returning to the start in Heat 4. Craig and Mitchell Bond's Passing Wind! took third in Heats 3 and 4.
The Irish dominance continued in Heat 4, with Tantilizer (Bobby Collins and Fintan Hughes) taking first, continuing yesterday's great performances.
In Heat 4, second went to Gee-Czar and third to Passing Wind! as mentioned above.
Tomorrow may be a challenging day for the Mirrors, as the forecast temperature is above 30 C with a strong chance of a sea breeze.
