Argh. Copy/paste from a word doc didn't work so well. Chalk it up to late-night...
Day two; Two rounds in the can and Round three begun.
More records set (and re-broken) today.
Spirits are high, but the wind grew higher for a short bit this afternoon, and by evening, clouds covered us in.
Looking forward to a big tomorrow.

***Same suit must be used for all rounds of competition
In the event of damage occurring to the suit the judges can allow a second suit

Which I assume must be of the same model / type?

Yes. If the same model/type is not available, then the chief judge has the authority to decide whether the competitor continues or can present a case for a substitution.
