Wales Round 1 - Day 2

Saturday 7th May: Day two of the Rhosneigr event and the good news is; its started raining! The warm front is approaching as the low pressure moves in. Forecast for Sunday is classic Rhosneigr: cross-shore southerly winds, decent swell and even some sunshine by the afternoon. The heats have been drawn up for all fleets and the plan is to start off with the Amateurs, Masters and Ladies followed by the Pros who may find themselves getting the 2am ferry to Ireland rather than the more leisurely, late afternoon boat!

The plan this afternoon is to get the Exocet Mini Tanker boards out for some light wind fun. Exocet have kindly lent us some boards for the Tour and with the building swell, currently with 4ft faces, it gives a chance for the Pros to pass on their top tips for wave riding to the other fleets.

Tonight is fancy dress (of course) and as this is Wills & Kate's local beach the theme is 'Royal Wedding'. Dust off your top hats and tiaras - the four Rhosneigr pubs won't know what's hit them.

Updates on all the Sunday action here!

The conditions gave us a chance to formally award the 2010 BWA UK Wave Tour Constructor Championship trophies. The first time this award has been introduced to UK Wave sailing.
 Congratulations to JP Austalia (Board) and Simmer Style (Sail).

Receiving the awards on behalf of their sponsors were local sailors Ben Proffitt (Simmerstyle) Phil Horrocks (JP Australia) .
