MexORC Copa Corum - Challenging day 4 + Video

2014 MexORC Copa Corum - Day 4
We welcome you back for day four of the MexORC Copa Corum. This great regatta is reaching the finishing line leaving behind the lay day where all the sailors enjoyed unique moments. The weather conditions were more than promising for another exciting day of racing action. After a persistent shift to the left the wind stabilized in 15 - 20 knots making the conditions tricky and very challenging for all teams.

Great opening day for the J70 Class with Giovanni Aloi Timeus to be the one who ruled the waves. In ORR classes, all the sailors had another tough day as they had to deal with the high level of competition under demanding weather conditions.

In ORR1 Class, Grand Illusion with Edward McDowell still has the advantage but Vincitore and Ricardo Brockmon close follow waiting for the chance to overcome.

In ORR2 Class, Greg Slungstad on Hamachi with steady and great performance so far has the lead. Veloce II with Andres Baptista, will have to take some risks in order to catch the first place but should keep an eye on Akellare. In ORR3 Class, it seems that Bandido with Ernesto Aguilar will have great battles until the very end with Generalisimo the representative of the Mexican Navy. The action is now moving to Riviera Nayarit as the Circuito Mexicano de Vella continues with WesMex regatta. Stay tuned!
