Tuesday 16 September 2014 – It was a tough fifth day of racing for all of the fleets at the Santander 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships with a challenging up and down wind playing havoc across the seven race courses.
It was scheduled to be a Super Tuesday with all of the fleets apart from the Women’s RS:X scheduled to take to the water but the schedule did not quite go to plan with abandonments, strong current and a fickle breeze challenging the Race Committees.
All of the fleets managed to complete some racing with the Men’s RS:X and Women’s 470 rounding off their Qualification Series, the Laser and Laser Radial continued their gold fleet racing and the remaining fleets resumed qualification.
