Day 2 proved a super critical day in terms of the overall leaderboard at the WA Moth State Championships. Session 1 of the day turned into a marginal race where most of the fleet were in lowriding mode for majority of the race. Max Puttman made the best of the conditions and took the win using a high lifter foil he was able to stay on the foils for the majority of the race taking it easily in the end.

After a long break in the middle of the day racing resumed once river space was acquired and the sea breeze settled in. A large crowd had built up on the hill at Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht club and they were treated to some amazing racing. Proving the morning was no one-of Puttman again showed a clean pair of heels to win the first race of the afternoon session.

The final 2 races of the day were sailed in absolute glamour conditions, with plenty of passing lanes on the short 4 lap course, most of the boats had their moments, with the 2 new MACH2.4s both taking heat wins in the final 2 races of the day.

It has thrown the results wide open heading into day 3 with only 3pts separating the top 3 boats. It will be all to play for and with plenty of breeze forecast for Sunday it will be an epic way to finish a fantastic event!
