Audi ALL4ONE Score

Audi Sailing Team powered by All4One scored their first win of the Audi MedCup season with a gun to gun victory in Race 7 of the Marseille Trophy in the breeziest conditions of the regatta so far.

With Jochen Schuemann on the wheel and Seb Col calling the breeze, Audi All4ONE broke early from the pin end of the start line and powered out to the left side of the course where the beneficial bend in the breeze was soon theirs, allowing them to cross the fleet early and maintain control of the race, going on to win over 100 metres from Udo Schuetz' s Container steered by Markus Wieser.

Quantum Racing's 3,4,3 in today's three races has them three points ahead of second place, but Container were the most consistent scorers climbing back  to second on the strength of their 2,3,2 results.

RAN, after a 4,2, dropped to fourth overall after they were DSQ'd for an incident with Gladiator. The British crew which won the first race today had to retire with a damaged bowsprit.
