Audi MedCup – Barcelona
Another solid day for Artemis with scores of 1, 5, 1 on a very tricky day here in the Med.
A light seabreeze filled in at noon and the first two races were sailed in 11-13 knots from the southeast. The first race went really well as we led from start to finish. We pulled a bit of a rabbit out of the hat on the last run of the second race to go from last to 5th at the finish line. In the last race, we led all the way but near top of the second windward leg, the wind got very light and we got a bit out of phase. Quantum closed to within 1 length of us with Matador just a length behind them. With the sea disproportionatey big, the sailing was tough.
All ended well for Artemis.
So, we have a one point lead over Emirates Team New Zealand and are seven points ahead of Quantum.
The forecast for tomorrow is a moderate seabreeze from the southeast.
