Adris RC44 Cup day two report from Paul Cayard, match racing helmsman/tactician for Katusha:
Katusha - Adris RC44 Cup 2011
The perfect weather allowed the Race Committee to serve up four races again today here in Rovinj. The bright sunshine and 10 knots sea breeze made for a perfect day of racing... third in a row really. And the forecast is for the conditions to remain the same through the end of the event on Sunday.
Aqua had the best day today with scores of 2, 4, 1, 1 and took and handy seven point lead in the event at 30 points. Cereef followed closely with 3,3,3,1 for the second best day and moved into a tie for third with yesterday's co-leader Artemis, each with 40 points. Islas Carnarias scored 20 points today and is in second place with 37 points. Yesterday's other co-leader Oracle Racing scored 26 points on the day and slipped to fifth place.
Onboard Katusha we had a bit better day scoring 26 points for the day, 12 points less than our abysmal day yesterday. Finishing second in the last race was a nice way to end the day. We moved up to a tie for eight place with Ironbound at 64 points.
Tomorrow the President of Croatia is coming to visit the event and attend the gala dinner. There are three races on schedule for tomorrow.
