Copa del Rey, Race Day 4
It was a good day for Siemens/Matador as we regained the lead.
With Princess Ellena di Borbon onboard, we had two good scores today, 3 and 5. Stay Calm of Great Britain won both races and moved into a tie with Mutua Madrilena, so both are two points behind us.
Two races were held in 22 knots, dropping to 14 knots of wind from 055-NE. The course was more open than in the southerly breeze so the fleet stayed quite compact. The first race was windy and the fleet enjoyed some planing conditions downwind. The wind steadily dropped as the day went on. Only two races were run.
So, tomorrow will be a big day with the top three boats within two points of each other and only two races scheduled. The four points awarded to Mutua Madrilena, after the conclusion of racing on Wednesday, could become decisive.
