RC44 Trapani Cup - Decent day 2 for Artemis Racing

On the second day of the RC44 Trapani Cup, the fleet had four races in the Mediterranean Sea just off Trapani's north shore.

Winds were 7-15 knots from the north-northeast. The sun was out and it was a beautiful spring day.

The first two races were quite shifty but for the second two, the wind steadied down quite a bit and the right side of the course, along the coast, paid.

Onboard Artemis we had a decent day...nothing flash. We collected 25 points which puts us in seventh place but just seven points separates us from second place.

Katusha had a slightly better day with 22 points, 12 of those in the last race.

Many of the boats were quite inconsistent. Cereef, with Igor Lah at the helm, had the best and most consistent day with scores of 2, 5, 3, 2.

Racing continues tomorrow through Sunday. For complete results go to the RC 44 website.
