Today, the third day of racing at the TP52 World Championships, the programme is for one windward-leeward and one short coastal race of about 18 miles.
The challenge is being able to change the mindset from windward leeward to coastal racing, to set up the boat and change the sail inventory and to be able to quickly assess what might happen on the course, where the transition areas are. One thing with the windward-leeward course is that it is usually set up between the left breeze and the right breeze but the coastal will usually cross different breezes.

After their 2,3 yesterday Azzurra sit at the top of the leaderboard with a margin of five points. World Champions Quantum Racing lie ninth but the reality is that there are just six points separating them from third overall. But today we reach race 5 and the midpoint of the regatta and so it will be a critical day when Azzurra need to keep steady with their consistency, the sharp starting that has been their hallmark so far this regatta, and solid, steady tactics.
