TP52 World Championship

Another tough day for Artemis with an 8, 6. We are still in 4th place overall, but we are closer to 5th than third.

The wind came up late today and we got racing at 1500 in 8 knots and fairly smooth seas.

We just didn’t have a stellar day in any area, starts, tactics nor speed. So, we paid the price.

Quantum sailed well to get a 2, 1 and Matador almost as well with a 3, 2. Quantum leads Matador by a couple of points for the world title.

Synergy is in 3rd place and Cristabella is 5th.

So, we have our work cut out for us to get a podium finish tomorrow.

The forecast isn’t promising. It could be that there won’t be enough wind to race but at least it will be raining.

Quite a few of us are flying to Madrid tomorrow night and then onto Lanzarote Sunday morning for the RC44 World Championship that starts there Monday. It is going to be a busy weekend!
