Tuesday 3 August

The day got off to a flying start with two Gold, and one Silver, medals for GBR in the sailing.

The first race scheduled for 11am was delayed waiting for the wind to bed in, and eventually got underway at 12.45. As soon as the sequence started the wind wavered as the initially expected westerly appeared. Fortunately, the wind came back quickly and the race continued.

After a lunch break the Nairn Pursuit was held in strengthening winds. Graham Vials sailing a Mirror with son Sebastian, took advantage of clear airs to take an early lead, which no other boat was able to overcome.

In the evening, after another fish supper, sailors and families will, no doubt, prove that Bass HAS got talent which is open to all comers.
