The match of the day has to be given to MRT vs Aleph Sailing Team skippered by Bertrand Pace. The fiery frenchman was quick through the water, but MRT managed to fend off all of his attacks.

Pace conceded 3 penalties throughout the race, with Mirsky masterfully placing the boat to force the error on the french team who sit 1 point ahead going into the third day of racing tomorrow.

MRT need to win two of their three races tomorrow if they want to be in with a shot at the title here in Switzerland, but with more time in the boats, the team is getting on top of the shifty conditions that are proving to be the winning factor up here in the mountain lakes.
