It was a beautiful day for day one of the Sail22 Melges 24 Worlds Tuning Regatta in Annapolis. Teams were able to get in four races with thirteen starts in total in a nice southerly sea breeze of 12-15 knots with puffs up to 20 knots. Throughout the day 18 teams participated and were coached by Dave Ullman throughout the racing. Check out today's photo gallery here.
