There was no stopping Alegre (GBR) who dominated her opposition.

“Conditions today in a way were easier than yesterday except for one section of the race,” said Owner/Skipper Andres Soriano. “We are very pleased with the crew work in these light conditions. It is important that everyone is in tune with the boat and that the crew gave their all under hot and uncomfortable conditions,” Soriano added.

“We had a really good race today, the wind played into the leader's hands as it shifted and followed us around. Last year we dominated the inshore series and finished second in the long race and we are now hoping to go one better this year,” said Alegre's Tactician Chris Main.

Today’s winners were: Alegre (GBR) in Group 0 IRC, Imagine (GER) in Group A IRC, Tchin Tchin (FRA) in Group B IRC and Manida (ITA) in Group B ORC.

After two races, Alegre (GBR) won their class in Group 0 IRC, Early Bird (GER) were winners of Group A IRC and a Rolex Submariner, Tchin Tchin (FRA) took Group B IRC and Manida (ITA), Group B ORC.
