The Family Of Us Sailing Mourns The Joseph Chomyn Loss

It might have seemed like a relatively summer sea breeze that is straightforward on the Bay of Palma, but  two races contested today by the ten TP52s at the Puerto Portals 52 Super Series Sailing Week turned out hard to read. The truth that is hard to keep a high level of consistency in both races is probably best illustrated in the results of the super consistent Sled. This is the one who won the first race, but they ended at the tenth position in the second round as well as in those of the Luna Rossa, the Italian America’s Cup challengers. He finished in the ninth position in the first race and then in the second race turned out as the winner of the race.

In the two races that tool took the regatta towards its midpoint, the best races were the circuit leaders, Quantum Racing by Doug DeVos and Phoenix of Tina Plattner.

On the second day of the event, a full day of racing was completed in almost all the classes with some gains and losses across the fleet.

For sailing, it was a tricky day, but also had big pressure systems doing a flip flop, which leads to lots of losses and of gains to sailors.”
