With two races penciled in for the 52 Series the wind direction forecast is for 310 and 340 degrees, moving right by ten degrees later this afternoon. The sea breeze is expected to blow from the  south west and possibly build enough to influence the gradient in the middle to late afternoon.

The pressure is on Container to maintain their momentum after scoring a first and second yesterday while Audi Sailing Team powered by ALL4ONE are off to a good start after getting the bullet in yesterday's second race.

Ran is nipping at their heels, the Italians are out to prove themselves and Quantum are determined to redeem themselves. It's on for young and old.
