Extreme Sailing Series 2015: Old guard lay down marker

Wet, but up and down winds, on the second day of the opening 2015 Extreme Sailing Series saw the old guard lay down a marker but a couple of the new boys let them know that there would be no cheap points on offer this ninth season. Singapore provides a tricky track on a Marina Bay surrounded by wind-bending tall buildings laying some traps for the unwary. The Australian Seve Jarvin found the wall of the casino much more unyielding than the bowsprit of GAC Pindar, which duly snapped off and cost him four races.
