It was victory for the British crew of Gladiator in their first race on the Audi MedCup Circuit when they triumphed in today's second race.

Audi Sailing Team powered by All4ONE, Gladiator and Synergy all reaped the rewards of the significant pressure to be found offshore before racing was moved to the Rade Sud in more frustrating conditions.

After starting in a 11-12 knot southerly breeze Audi Sailing Team powered by All4ONE lead from the windward mark all the way to the final run where they extended too far to the right downwind and ran out of the best of the breeze, finishing third behind Synergy.

Quantum Racing's late start saw them get buried in the pack and finish a disappointing eighth. The overall standings have Quantum Racing leading by just one point from Synergy.
