Racing at Last...

TP52 - Audi MedCup - Cartagena

Good day on Artemis today. We started the day in 4th place for the season and we are now in second.
It was a tough day out there with plenty of carnage. Fortunately we did not break anything and while our 7, 2 scores were not perfect, they were better than Quantum Racing and Matador.
With the wind reaching 32 knots and a very rough sea, Team New Zealand was in a class of their own winning both races. Audi Q8 had a good day scoring 2, 3 for second and Bribon had a 2, 6 for third. We are fourth.
Racing was stopped after the second race due to the damage that some of the boats incurred. Boats like Synergy and Matador broke 2 or 3 gennakers each! No collisions though.
Forecast for tomorrow is more of the same.
