The briefing on day two saw very different conditions.

The racing was to be held over two laps of simple windward leeward style course.

We had 25 knots of breeze out on the water and a two metre short swell running. The first race was made even more challenging as the fog descended to reduce visibility to around 400 metres. The wind strength decreased slightly through the day, the visibility improved and the sea state moderated allowing a total of five races to be held.

Kristian Olsen (NOR-110) had this event well covered, winning all the races. Taking the event podium places from right to left were Kristian Olsen (NOR-110), Anders Løken (NOR-12) and Magne Frønsdal (NOR-4).

As the only international visitor to the event, I was made to feel very welcome and look forward to my next visit to Norway. Each time I have been to Norway for an event, we have been greeted by stormy conditions providing challenging racing.
