On the closing day of the 2012 Bosphorus Cup, business did not get underway with the best perspective. The boats had to wait for hours in the water for the wind to come. The race committee had to postpone races for several hours before a light breeze come from the North.
The first race of the day started with the boats fighting for a good place on the starting line. Nevertheless a few meters after the start the wind shifted considerably and the organizers had to abandon the race and reset the course area.
The second and final start was given and the boats had a clear start. Many were the candidates for the first place and the ticket to Porto Cervo and every one was pushing hard. That had as a result, a big collision between Fenerbahce 1 and 7 Bela that could not continue racing.
Big winner of the American Express Bosphorus Cup 2012 was finally Goblin 3 that secures its participation to the Melges 24 European Championship in Porto Cervo. The crew celebrated their victory and awaits for the big award ceremony on Tuesday to take the prestigious trophy.
