Gruber defends lead after six more races at SWC Melbourne

Fleet racing on windward-leewards was the call of the day in a building 15 knots breeze on day two of the Sailing World Cup in Melbourne.

Six races were completed with Gruber taking 4 out of 6. Martin Dolenc showed a strong performance in the final two races of the day, screaming down the final reach to the finish line overlapped with Gruber and taking the victory both times.

Sitting safely in third position is Ric Black from Australia.

The forecast tomorrow is calling for strong conditions with a building south-easterly wind expected to peak at around 30 knots in the later afternoon, which might leave the kiteboards being the only class sailing as the day progresses. Another three fleet races are scheduled for the first session, before the local kite community is called out for some demo foil racing after the completion of the official programme.

Everyone is invited to see us from 3pm at St. Kilda Beach to join in the informal racing. Bring your ID or driving license as deposit for the racing lycra and sign in, come out, and get your results in the evening.

Racing continues through to Sunday with 3 medal races scheduled.
