After the administrative formalities, it was time to get down to business and compete. The first day of competition saw our military athletes compete on Snipe International Class yachts in three legs of approximately 45 to 50 minutes each.


To the delight of the sailors, the weather conditions were very stable and ideal for sailing with speeds of 8, 12 and 14 knots for the three legs.
