RAN are leading the Audi MedCup City of Barcelona Trophy after racking up a second and first in today's intense opening in a light sea breeze.

Bribon won the first race and after reading the breeze best on the first beat lead around the windward mark and held on to cross the finish line ahead of RÁN followed by Quantum Racing in third

In the second race RÁN set the pace after starting close to the pin end of the start line they lead at the windward mark from Audi ALL4ONE. Luck wasn't on the Franco-German team's side when a small rip in their gennaker forced them to peel to a less powerful kite. At the top mark the second time around Audi ALL4ONE fouled the mark and were required to do a penalty turn.

RÁN are leading the overall point score followed by Bribon and Quantum Racing in third.
