Thailand Worlds Day One

30 March 2014

The first day of the Fireball World Championships belonged to Christian Birrell and Sam Brearey. They ended the day with a perfect score sheet after two great starts allowed them to dictate play in both races.

The breeze was a little lighter than expected - only around 8 to 12 knots but the pumping flag was still up. As a result there are alot of very tired sailors at the bar tonight having had to pump and ooch their way around the course all day.

The left side of the course was the way to go again but the tide was making decisions a little tricky. Coming in for the first time during a race so far.

Nathan Bachelor and Sam Pascoe again sailed well for two seconds.  They held off some tough challenges from a number of the Aussie teams.

Tomorrow looks like it will have similar conditions to today so stay tuned for some great racing in paradise.
