ISAFWeymouth and Portland International Regatta

This world class event is being staged at the site of the Olympic sailing venue for 2012. The challenge has drawn competitors from across the gloge to test out the competition and the fickle waters and wind of the area in preparation for 2012. Ian Badley was out on the water yesterday when the wind was light and any mistake by the crews in the opening womens match racing competition was punished with little hope of catch up. The GBR crew skippered by Lucy Macgregor won their first race but narrowly lost out in others. The Finnish team worked well on day one of the series.
Ian will be back at the event on a number of other days over the coming week.
