The temperature will rise on the third day of ISAF Sailing World Cup Qingdao with three races planned across all fleets.
After 37 knot gusts were reported on Tuesday 15 October the third day will be a different ball game with plenty of sun and a breeze that will excite, not fright.
Coming from the North West 16 knots will blow from 09:00 local time through to 14:00 as the breeze dips slightly at 15:00 whilst veering further west. The current will peak at 1.7 knots.
Racing across the six fleets racing in Qingdao, Laser, Laser Radial, Men's and Women's 470 and Men's and Women's RS:X, will commence racing at 11:00 local time with three races scheduled.
The results from the opening day of racing stand as current with Cyprus' Pavlos Kontides leading the way in the Laser having dominated the opening day with double bullets.
World #1 Laser Radial sailor Tatiana Drozdovskaya (BLR) showed her experience in the biggest fleet in Qingdao and has a narrow advantage.
Shahar Zubari (ISR) has a strong hold in the Men's RS:X whilst Chinese dominance is prevalent in the Women's RS:X.
ISAF Rolex World Sailor of the Year Nominees Jo Aleh and Polly Powrie (NZL) took the sole Women's 470 victory on the opening day whilst Sime Fantela and Igor Marenic (CRO) took the one Men's 470 race win.
