Sail-World.com : RC44 Austria Cup - A level playing field

RC44 Austria Cup - A level playing field

'Cayard Sailing - RC44 Austria 2011'    © Irene Ganser

RC44 Austria Cup 2011 is as level a playing field as you could wish to find in international yacht racing with its strict one-design racing format.

Paul Cayard onboard Katusha reports:

'We did one race here on the final day for the RC44 fleet. It was a rainy and cold day....temperature about 10 degreesC. It hailed at one point.

Oracle Racing continued their dominance of the event by winning the only race of the day. Onboard Katusha, we had our worst race of the event finishing 10th and finished up sixth overall. For sure it has been a frustrating three days since our good start last Thursday. Lake Traunsee is always an extremely tricky venue and this year I did not do a good job of figuring it out.

Artemis had a tough regatta and finished 11th.

Oracle Racing with Russell Coutts as tactician really did a great job and always seemed to be in the right place at the right time and that was quite a feat considering the wind was shifting 90 degrees regularly and 150 degrees at times.
Aqua, a brand new boat for this event got on form also in the last couple of days to finish second.

We are looking forward to the next event in Cagliari, Sardinia June 28-July 3. '
