 X40Catamaran  Extreme Sailing Series  Act 5  Cowes GBR  Day 2
The breeze exceeding 30 kn induced the Race Committee to split the fleet in two 6-boat groups for safety reaseons, and the X-40 cats sailed with reefs and without gennakers. Nevertheless a massive crash happened in the first race of the second group, taking 'Artemis' and 'Groupe Edmond de Rothschild' out of the race for the day. Here the video. In the overall rankings, 'Luna Rossa' with last year's winner Paul Campbell-James GBR steering has taken the lead, followed by 'The Wave - Muscat'. Looking for spectacular races very close to the shore, Cowes with a big well-informed crowd was definitely the place to go, compared to the AC-45 at Cascais. The report of the day and the results.
