Another solid day for Artemis with scores of 5, 2, 4. The boats is going well and despite being over the start line early in race one, we were very competive all day. The winds were 12-14 from the southwest. In the first two races a big line of cloud came in and the wind shifted to the east. Luckily, this was between races and the race committee had the patience to wait for things to settle even though it was 1800 before race three got going.
In the end, we had no protests last night so we were tied with Emirates Team New Zealand for second, one point behind Quantum after yesterday.
Quantum who led going into the day had a 1, 11, 1 today. Emirates Team New Zealand had scores of 3, 1, 2 and are now leading. Artemis is 2nd, 5 point backs and Quantum is 3rd, 1 point behind us.
It is 2000 and we just hit the dock. A long but good day. A couple of meetings and then we will all be in for a good night’s sleep.
