Paul Cayard's RC44 Update - Cagliari, Sardinia

RC44 Cagliari Cup Final
3 July 2011

Excellent day for both Katusha and Artemis Racing.

Katusha with scores of 3, 3, 1 tied for best boat on the day with Oracle. So, Katusha moved up to 6th for the regatta.

Artemis Racing had a very good day also with scores of 2, 5, 3 and that moves them up to second place for the event.

The first race was light and tricky in the dying Mistral. Team Aqua had a bad one putting them in a tie with Islas Cannarias for the lead. After 30 minutes of waiting, the Southerly sea breeze filled in and the fleet had two beautiful races in 12-16 knots of wind.

Team Aqua sailed excellently to win that second race while the Spanish were deep. That pretty much sealed the event for Team Aqua.

The next RC44 event in Marstand Sweden in mid-August.

For me it is back to Valencia tomorrow to work on our America's Cup project, after a night in Rome with some good friends.
