D35 Sogeti Cup: Excellent scores for Artemis Racing

'Artemis Racing at the D35 Sogeti Cup 2011'    Vulcain Trophy

D35 Sogeti Cup 2011 is currently underway. Paul Cayard of Artemis Racing updates us on the great scores posted by the team in Geneva, Switzerland. In the first two races of the day Artemis Racing posted excellent scores with a 2, 4 and had taken the lead in the regatta.

The first mark of the third race, Okalys, crashed into us while on port tack and that ended our day. As we were on starboard tack, we applied to the jury for redress and it was granted.

The jury has quite wide discretion as to how they award redress. They could have averaged our points of the regatta to that point, discarding the worst score as that was how the scoring was done at that point. We would have been awarded 2.6 points per race in that case. The other extreme was to award us the average of all our scores including the discarded race. That would have resulted in 3.8 points per race. They chose the later and we finished second for the weekend.

With four regattas now complete, Artemis Racing is tied for second place with Volti Group in the D35 season championship with Focia winning. This being our first season in the class, we have to be pretty happy with that!

Next Saturday is the Bol d'Or, the race that will start in Geneva, take the fleet to Montreux at the opposite end of the lake some 50 miles away and back to Geneva.

This race can take anywhere for five to 25 hours. Drifting for hours followed by thunder squalls is not uncommon. Boats leading the entire race and then falling out of the wind 1 mile from the finish is also not uncommon. It will be my first Bol d'Or and it should be interesting.
