RC44 Cup San Diego day 4 good for Artemis and Katusha

RC44 Cup San Diego day 4 was another good day for Katusha and Artemis Racing, reports Paul Cayard.

Katusha continues to lead the fleet here in San Diego with scores of two, six, two and thirty-five points. Artemis Racing had a one, four, six for a total of fourty-six for the series and fourth place. TeamAqua had the same points as we did for the day and remain two back at thirty-seven and Oracle had 11 and remains in third with 42 points.

The big moment of the day for Katusha occurred in the second race when we rounded the last windward mark tenth and managed to gybe through the fleet to finish sixth. We have come back like that more than once this week and shaving points like that makes a big difference on the score card.

The racing is just fast and furious on the tight race track inside the Bay here. Lead changes and gains and losses of five places in three minutes are common in the fleet.

So, with three races left for tomorrow, it is still wide open. What we do take into tomorrow is a boat that is going better than ever and a crew who is sailing together well. So both Artemis Racing and Katusha will put that on the race track and we will see where the chips fall at the end of the day.
