by WIMRA media

The second day of racing at the Buddy Melges Challenge at the US Sailing Center Sheboygan in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, USA, was another interesting day for the 15 international teams in the Elliott 6ms. The winds decreased during the day from a high of 10-12 knots down to less than 5 by the end of the day. The Initial stage was completed and the top four teams in each group advance to the Quarter Final Round Robin while the bottom four teams in each group moved on to the Consolation Round Robin. Three flights of the Quarter Finals were completed and the results show no clear leader with four teams winning 2 of 3 matches and 4 teams winning 1 of 3. The top 8 have all to play for tomorrow with the top four teams advancing to the Semi Finals.
