Sail-World.com : RC44 Trapani Cup - Tumultuous day 4 for Artemis Racing
RC44 Trapani Cup - Tumultuous day 4 for Artemis Racing


'The storm rolls in over the RC44 fleet - 2013 RC44 Trapani Cup'    RC44 Class/MartinezStudio.es
On day four of the 2013 RC44 Trapani Cup, only two races were held due to thunder and lightning all around the area. The clouds generated strong winds in the 16-23 knot range from the northeast.

In the first race, Artemis Racing sailed a pretty smooth race and we finished second behind Cereef with Katusha third.

In the second race, we were battling away in fifth most of the race. Katusha had the race in hand all the way around the 2-lap course.

Seconds after a very close finish with Aqua, and a deep downwind 'shoot', the leech of their gennaker touched our mainsail. The fault could be debated, however it's not material, as both boats had finished. Unfortunately the umpire making the call was about six boat lengths to windward of the line and could not judge the fact that both had finished.

Artemis Racing was penalized after the finish and therefore scored last which is 13 points. All on the water umpire calls are final.

Katusha sailed very well to win the second race and coupled with their third place in the first race, they won the day by one point over Cereef who also sailed very well to score 1, 4.

So after three days of racing, Cereef leads with 35 points, Aqua is second with 40, Katusha is third with 42 and Artemis Racing and Nika are tied for fourth with 52 points.

Tomorrow is the final day of this event and the race committee is hoping to get three to four races in tomorrow as today was a short day.

Our skipper, Torbjörn Tornqvist, is leaving us today as he has to attend to business. Sarah Gundersen will be taking his place at the helm tomorrow.

For complete results go to RC44.
