Wind fills in for Tornados

The Tornado fleet had a good, windy couple of races at their European Championships in Sweden

Wednesday August 10th 2005, Author: Myrrh Walker, Location: United Kingdom
At the Tornado Europeans in Vastervik, Sweden, the wind filled in and blew 15-20 knots for most of the day. Due to a short, inshore course the racing remained tight with a lot of boats swapping places for most of the day. Throughout the day the wind built and as a result boats suffered from the odd crash and breakage.

After a disappointing first day, Rob Wilson and Mark Bulkeley scored a sixth and a ninth in today’s races. Bulkeley commented, “We had some really competitive racing out there today. We’ve had light winds for most of the season and today we had the chance to sail in some heavier winds. The top slots are still up for grabs as most boats have a mixed bag of results.”
