GC32-Catamaran - Extreme Sailing Series - Act 6 - Madeira POR - Day 3

 GC32-Catamaran - Extreme Sailing Series - Act 6 - Madeira POR - Day 3 There was enough wind - 12 kn - in Funchal/Madeira POR yesterday to get the GC32 foiling, and six races were completed. At the start of race 3, Roman Hagara AUT with his 'Red Bull Sailing Team' screamed across the start line at full tilt but got too close to 'Alinghi' with Arnaud Psarofaghis SUI, and the back of their boat clipped the front of the Swiss. The impact between the two super-fast GC32 catamarans snapped a crucial part of Alinghi’s rigging and 16.5-metre carbon fibre mast and sails fell into the water. The video. Thanks to the redress given, the Swiss remain on top of the interim's rankings. 'Oman Air' with Morgan Larson USA now on rank 2 is 5 points behind and everything is open in the final races today ... provided the 'Alinghi' shore crew succeeded to repair the multihull during the past night.
The report with the ranking list.

 Windsurfing - PWA World Tour 2016 - Wave - Klitmöller DEN - Day 4 Yesterday, the bad luck with wind and waves at the Danish West Coast persisted. There was some hope that competable conditions with 20 knots of wind would fill in, and for a while, the wind did arrive, but unfortunately the swell never built to a suitable level to allow the contest to begin.The forecast for today looks promising with a 16 to 18 kn wind. On Sunday however, the final day of the event, the fresh wind from the shore will not produce any waves again to start the competition. Today or never !
