    1st race-- Interesting racing in 5-7 knots wind with all boats mostly foiling upwind and doing high 20's off wind.
    The Japanese won and Team USA got last! And the French, for some reason, didn't cross the finish line.
    ----
    2nd race-- Australia 1st, Japan 2nd, USA 3rd. 5 knot breeze fluctuating to 7 . All boats foiling upwind and down -one boat did 2o knots upwind.
    ----
    3rd race-- The Aussies won their second straight racr.Japan 2nd,France 3rd,UK 4th, USA 5th, China 6th.
    ====================================
    Standings after three races:
    1-Japan
    2-Australia
    3-UK
    4-USA
    5-China
    6-France

    John Bertrand, Skipper of Australia II in 1983 presented the medals to Team Australia. First time I've seen him since he won the Cup: he looked young and fit-what a great guy!
    ---
    Another major highlight: in just 10 knots of breeze several boats did 30 knots!
