During today's morning briefing session, Drougkas focused on

Boat preparation - before racing run speed tests upwind and downwind, with a focus on the technique to be chosen downwin, and body position
Perfecting the Start - ensure there is no risk of an OCS, as the wind was so shifty that the race is still anyone's game whatever the start
Race Strategy - preparing a good race strategy plan, particularly on mark roundings, not crossing laylines and use of the boomvang
Weather - making full use of all weather information
