With gale force winds forecast from lunchtime on, Principal Race Officer Peter Reggio got racing underway two hours ahead of schedule, at 0930, before finally pulling the plug at midday after two races had been held. Over this period the conditions were 'changeable', starting in around 10-12 knots, but with a sizeable swell left over from yesterday, oddly running with the boats on the upwind legs. For race two the wind was building, typically in the high-teens with the wind-driven waves picking up, confusing the sea state.
The day's stand out performer was 'Katusha' with Vadim Alexeev RUS and Andy Horton USA calling tactics winning both heats. Finishing 2nd and 3rd, 'Charisma' with Nico Poons NED and Morgan Reeser USA as tactician had also a good day, advancing on rank 2 overall. On rank 3 follows 'Nika' with Vladimir Prosikhin RUS and Dean Barker NZL.
The ranking list, the daily report and the videos.

The Austrian Yachtcharter Pitter, a multiplayer on the Adriatic Sea, has extended its activities to Turkey. Two charter bases have been establish at the historical and pittoresque Lycian coast in Göcek (Gulf of Fethiye) and Kas. The Monohulls range from 33 to 53 foot, the Cats from 38 to 50 foot. As in all Pitter charter bases, two categories are available: 'Prestige' for yachts built in 2010 or after, 'Economic-Line' for yachts constructed before 2010 on rental at a lower fee.
No doubt, the Gulf of Fethiye with the many islands and accommodating coves is just perfect for a one-week charter. However, when sailing over longer distances is the preferred activity, Pitter offers oneway sailing from Göcek to Kas or back.
All charter information and availability of yacht are posted on the Pitter website.
