The podium after the second day of racing at Antigua Sailing Week had Irish interest with both Jonny Mordaunt's CSA 2 Tschuss and Adrian Lee's Lee Overlay Partners in CSA3 were race winners.

The race was blessed with stunning conditions with 15-20 knots of wind from the east, according to RORC's Louay Habib.

Jonny Mordaunt, Tom McWilliam and Simon Johnson are onboard Tschuss along with Dun Laoghaire's Cian Guilfoyle and Christy Welsh (who won the Caribbean 600 on Warrior). Helmsman Christian Zugel is a member of Royal Cork YC. Tschuss is racing in a two-boat fleet but a startline shared with CSA1 and the Multihulls is keeping everyone busy.

"Bright sunshine, ocean swell and solid trade winds provided the perfect cocktail for thrilling racing at the world-famous regatta", Habib writes on the event website.

Winners on Day Two were: Ambersail 2; Tschuss; Pata Negra; Lee Overlay Partners II; Blitz; Scarlet Oyster; Hermes; Kai; NSA Spirit; Whiplash; Tosca; Rebel; Holding Pattern; Blue Skies; Libertas; KH+P Bermuda; KH+P Culebra; KHS&S Contractors; SqueakyBrat II; KH+P Rubens and Voilactus.
