ARTEMIS, CONTAINER AND MAGIC CARPET, STILL LEADERS AT THE HUBLOT PALMAVELA

TP52 Artemis signs three dominant wins in as many races today. Container holds to the first position in the Mini Maxi class, and Shockwaves moves up to the second place. Magic Carpet is first in the Maxi Wally class, and Esense rips her spinnaker.
With a breeze of eight to ten knots from the 190º to the 220º, more than a hundred boats have filled the Bay of Palma today. The second racing day has brought few changes to the standings of the TP52, Mini Maxi and Maxi Wally classes, with Artemis repeating victory in the TP52's, and Container and Magic Carpet holding to the first positions in Mini Maxi and Maxi Wally respectively.
“Peraleja Golf”, “Inmobiliaria Nova”, “Peninsula Petroleum” and “Symfony” have won in the first races run by the J-80, Platú 25, RI 1 and ORC classes respectively.
Tomorrow the Lateen Rigged Sailing and Disabled Sailing classes will join competition. In the Transpac 52 class, Tornbjorn Tornqvist's Artemis has controled all the races held today, after clearly taking the lead from the start in all of them. “Cristabella” has struggled to remain behind the Swedish boat, and Matador was third after repeating yesterday's sailing pattern, with bad starts, bad beats, but good downwinds, which have allowed the Argentinian flagged boat to move up passing British “Weapon” of Tom Wilson, which has finished fourth and is last in the overall classification. Alberto Roemmers' Matador is third, one point behind second classified, Cook's Cristabella.
We haven't seen big changes among the giants of the Maxi Wally and Mini Maxi classes either in the three exciting races held today in the Delta Racing Area, opposite the Arenal. The day's first contest of the Maxi Wallies was very similar to the one run yesterday, with victory of Magic Carpet of Daniel Gallichan, who marked “Y3K” of Claus-Peter Offen and Tristan Kinloch's “J One” during the whole race. The day's picture was the ripped spinnaker of Luca Bassani's “Esense”, after the sail got caught in the spreander, what costed her the first place. Things changed in the second race, very tight fought but finally won by “Y3K”, just one second ahead of Stefano Massa's “Indio”.
Massa cheered today's races up, finishing second in the third race, which was won by “J One”, second in the overall classification behind “Magic Carpet”, that remains leader in spite of her third place in the last race.
In the Mini Maxis, Udo Schutz's Container didn't give her first place up thanks to two victories in the two last races of the day, improving her fourth place in the first race. Neville Crichton's Shockwave had a good day today, with one first and two third places, which helped her move up to the second position in the overall classification. Shockwave really improved her speed today, who was lacking some weight yesterday, said Crichton. Andrés Soriano's Alegre is third in the overall standings after doing two second and one fourth place.
The J-80, current cutting edge class in Spain, delivered a nice spectacle on the water with a breeze of 8 knots which was enough for Ignacio Camino's Nextel and Gorostegui's Cantabria Infinita to take the lead from the start till the end. Peraleja Golf won the second race, and Nextel the third one.
The RI and ORC classes run a 23 and 14 miles coastal race, respectively. ORC was won by Russian Symfony, ahead of Mestral Fast and Xalest. In RI 1, John Bassadone's Peninsula Petroleum -former Turismo Madrid- made a good debut in competition and won the race followed by Aifos of the Spanish army, and Roberto Monti's Airis.
