Fisher/Gouron had a bad first race today, which put them in 3rd. 16-18 knots on the course gave perfect conditions for the Race Committee to call for 4 races, but still 1 race down. Tomorrow's start time has been moved up 1 hour to anticipate the lighter air day predicted. Keep on top via the live reporting on www.29erworlds.org
