A second place for Bribon sees the Spanish crew take the overall lead in the regatta and maintain their charge for the overall season title, keeping the heat on circuit leaders Quamtum Racing.

Container started nicely on the left side of the start line and were able to profit from the extra pressure on that offshore side of the windward-leeward course.

Bribon rounded the first mark in fifth but were able to climb steadily with smart sailing in the split breeze conditions.

Circuit leaders Quantum Racing again struggled in the second half of the race sliding from third at the first turn to cross the line seventh.

Bribon’s recovery to second allows them to now lead RAN for this regatta by a single point.

Due to lack of wind the second race was cancelled.
