Auckland offered yet another stunning sunny day for day 2 of Oceanbridge Sail Auckland 2016 with an arriving sea wind making through the day letting all scheduled groups to get afoot and complete lot of racing on the second day. Sam Meech extends to top the men’s Olympic single-handed Laser class featuring twenty boats including a firm contingent of international travelers. He leads, by one point, from Colin Cheng of Singapore.
Meech, after racing, told that he had a superb day, they had two light wind races and after that the wind picked up, the sea wind filled in and they had two slightly stronger races, therefore, it was a great day for him. He found this a bit tricky in the first two when it was a little larger, but when the breeze got up, he felt really good and was going quite fast so he is really happy.
