The penultimate day of racing also saw one of the most dramatic collisions in Extreme Sailing Series history between Team Aberdeen Singapore and Groupama sailing team. While Groupama is expected to return to racing tomorrow, the damage for Team Aberdeen Singapore is not yet confirmed.
Commenting on today’s events, Seve Jarvin said, 'it is going to take time for it all to come together for GAC Pindar, as we are a brand new crew, but we are very satisfied with today's improvements'
GAC end the day 11th in the standings with 49 points.
Alinghi top the leaderboard going into the final day.
The final day of racing resumes tomorrow at 14.30pm local time. GAC Pindar Website
