Omega Auckland Match Racing: Update #2 on Day 4

Part-way through the pre-start between Barker and Dickson, the second match was called off, due to a massive windshift. Mirsky won the first match comfortably against Jablonksi. The same windshift that affected the pre-start of the Barker v. Dickson match turned the Mirsky v. Jablonski match's first run into a reach. A subsequent change of course rectified the situation to the best of the race committee's ability in the light and variable conditions.

The race committee are re-locating and then a new course will be set up, but winds are still light and variable.

RR2 Flight 7 (First race was held on Friday; race two on Saturday)
Minoprio beat Col by 1s
Mirsky beat Jablonski
