RC44 Cagliari Cup 2011. Paul Cayard on the first day of racing in Sardinia.
by Paul Cayard
Great day for Artemis Racing. Both Artemis and Katusha won all their matches today, four wins for Katusha and three for Artemis. This puts Katusha in a tie with TeamAqua for first place at this event and Artemis in a tie with Oracle for third place. Not sure at this time how the ties will be broken.
The are now 15 boats in the fleet, so five boats sit out any given flight of races while ten battle.
The wind today was a mild Southeasterly that never built over 12 knots and softened in the afternoon. Nothing too spectacular to report. We were a little rusty on Katusha in the first match but were lucky enough to win and get better as the day went on.
Tomorrow a Mistral is forecast to arrive and last for three days. The Mistral brings 20-30 knots of wind from the Northwest.
This should make for exciting sailing with 15 of these RC44s on a short course.
