470 Worlds Day 3 Graham Biehl and Stu McNay

Update from Graham Biehl and Stu McNay - US Mens 470 Team
The Last Day of qualifying has finished. The winds were puffy and shifty but always between 10 and 20 knots as we warmed up before the race. We got a great start at the pin, tacked and crossed the fleet in the first normal range left shift. We thought we were leading the race with two other boats. The wind proceeded to die entirely and shit 40 degrees left putting us near last. We were mentally rattled and did not come back as well as we could have. We finished the race 23rd. We are currently in the 19th place. Seven races remain. -
