Nehammer / Urban take the lead of the Nice Christmas Regatta

The second day saw some better wind, allowing the race comittee to add three more races to the leaderboard. Once again it was an early dock out for the sailors. After a general recall race 3 was on with 10 knots. Benamati / Ambrosini ITA won it followed by Rohart / Pulfer FRA in second and Neehamer / Urban AUT in third. Race 4 was launched in 8 knots seeing Neehamer / Urban AUT win with a confortable lead, Schönherr / Gravad DEN in second and Benamati / Ambrosini ITA in third. The last race of the day was in the dying wind and only one turn was completed as the race had been shortened at the first downwind mark. The local team of Charton / Terrol FRA showed all the other teams how well they know the Baie des Anges by winning the race, Neehamer / Urban AUT finished second and Berg / Orsted DEN third.

After 5 races and a discard, the overall ranking is very tight for the top 3:

- Neehamer / Urban AUT 9 points

- Rohart / Pulfer FRA 10 points

- Schönherr / Gravad DEN 11 points

Two more races are scheduled for tomorrow, stay tuned.
