Extreme Sailing Series - Strong day 2 for J.P. Morgan BAR

On the second day of Act 2 of the Extreme Sailing Series, J.P. Morgan BAR showed their potential, delivering good starts in three races out of the six to post a hatch-trick of second place finishes. A positive day on the water allows the team to chip two places off the overall leaderboard, leaving them in sixth after two days of racing and 13 races.

Skipper Ben Ainslie was happier with the team’s performance today: 'It was a better day, we made some improvements on our boat handling from yesterday. To be able to flag an issue and sort it out is really satisfying. We had some really good races and again we had some races that we struggled through - making a few mistakes but we were mixing it up.

We are certainly improving, which was always the plan and in a way I’m much happier today than I was yesterday.'

Another light day with 5–7 knots that led to slow and at times punishing racing, Trimmer, Nick Hutton commented, 'We had a really good start to the day, we spent a lot of time last night debriefing and looking at our gybes so we were 100% happier with how that was going today. Which, ultimately made things a lot easier.

The starts were really good, a few of us have done some reaching starts in the AC45 so that experience helps a lot and we are moving forward through the fleet, rather than to the back so we are getting stronger. It’s a great venue, I’ve raced on the ESS circuit in Oman before and it’s great to be back here competing with J.P. Morgan BAR.'

After some shuffling at the top throughout the day, Alinghi still dominate the overall leaderboard with home team the Wave, Muscat close behind in second.
