Summary of day two

After four races, Thomas Le Breton (FRA) holds the leads on equal points
with Zach Railey (USA) in second. Double race winner today Ed Wright (GBR)
is in third. The top five boats are all withinb four points of each other.

The first race started with light winds but increased to 12 knots by the top
mark and 22 knots by the second race in a typical San Francisco Day with fog
rolling between the Golden Gate and cold breeze building during the day.

Wright rounded the top mark in third and moved ahead on the downwind to lead
throughout. Race one winner Gasper Vincec (SLO) and Thomas le Breton moved
tghrough the fleet to place second and third.

The wind had really kicked in for race four with Wright leading round the
top mark from Mark Andrews (GBR). Andrews took the lead on the first
downwind leg, but Wright dug in on the next beat and took a nice lead to
extend to the finish for a second race win. Thomas Le Breton placed third
