07.08.12 – A deepening low pressure in central Finland brought brisk 20-30 knot southwest winds and 2m seas to the two course inshore course areas today, producing challenging conditions for the 124 teams entered in Day Two of the Audi ORCi World Championships. The big breeze brought carnage and injury to the unprepared and unlucky on both courses, leaving the strong to survive.
One team unfortunately not returning to racing this week due to damage is Kirsten Harmstorf’s DK46 Tutima, whose damage to their keel and bulb is too extensive to repair. The team is packing up and heading back home to Germany.
