The conditions have abated since last night, and a slightly more user friendly set of conditions has appeared. Broken boards and ripped sails from the treacherous conditions yesterday were replaced or repaired, ready for the the new days racing. A steady 12 to 15 knots is forcast with sunny conditions as per normal. A view from the boat park sees people pulling out their equipment, placing it near the water. Others are lying on board bags stretching. Conversations of all sorts, ranging from team meetings,to idle chit chat, or just personal time mentally preparing for the day. Everybody is in their own special way ramping up for the days racing. Team groups, random groups of training partners or just freinds from all ends of the globe.
