Portimao, Portugal – Race Day 5

Unfortunately, another day without wind and therefore, no racing. So, the final results have not changed since Thursday’s coastal race;

1. Valle Romano – Mean Machine-Peter de Ridder-17

2. Artemis-32

3. Patches-42

4. CaixiaGalicia-44

5. Windquest-Doug de Vos-49 points

Of course, not racing the final two days was a let down. But days one and two provided the most exhilarating racing the Breitling MedCup fleet has had in the three years since its inception.

Also the organization of the event, including shoreside hospitality, set a new standard in sailing. This event was organized by Lagos Sports of Lisbon, who intend to get more involved with high profile sailing in the coming years, including the World Sailing League, which is the project Russell Coutts and I have been working on.

Next stop for the TP’s is Hyeres, France in two weeks time.
