Five exiting races had 20 competitors on the starting line with clean starts and no collisions or protest in the almost all Professional field.

On the woman’s side it has been toe to toe racing between the top three with the finishes in most races 10 seconds apart from each other. Melissa Gil is in the lead for now.

Winds are forecasted at 20 to 25 mph for Thursday and 30 to 35 mph for the rest of the week ensuring a great set up for the remainder of the competition. The race course is set with a one mile upwind mark and average times to finish the course are between 16 to 18 minutes.
