There was a very light wind for this second day of the Viper World 2014. The wind varied, depending on the hour, around 5 or 8 knots. Under these conditions, the race committee waited for 12:00 to start the race 4. Number 62 Kermarec / Bellet arrives first to the windward mark but is overtaken by the FRA299 Le Chapelier / Le Bouedec thus wins the race.
The fifth race was launched immediately. It will also be won by FRA 299 Le Cahpelier / Le Bouedec which retains its first place, before the jury. The race committee, who had planned to do 4 races, then decide to send back everyone to the shore until the wind expected in late afternoon. A little before 16:00, the race committee reads 9 knots on his anemometer and decides to call back the boats on the racing area. Unfortunately, the time to bring everyone on the racing area, the wind dropped even more and the last 2 races are canceled at 17 hours.
Photos of the day are online. Rankings before jury are also online and will be updated as soon as the jury has finished instructing any complaints.
