LIGHT WIND TACTICS TEST CREWS TO THE EDGE

Monaco (April 8th, 2017) – Light winds plagued the second day of battle off the shores of Monaco as the Mediterranean fleet took to the water today. Light wind tactics were pushed to the extreme as the wind dropped off to push an incredible 45 minutes of racing. A true test of focus and tactical skill.

After the success of yesterday, Guido Miani at the helm of Team Neverland confirms himself as leader of the day for the second time in a row, scoring two bullets, a fourth and a third. Candidate Sailing Team performed well in the second day of racing and ended the in second place, but after a shaky start yesterday they still haven’t recovered from their sixth place in overall event leaderboard. The other two bullets of the day went to Andrea Lacorte’s Vitamina Veloce and Patrik Sturesson’s Cape Crow Vikings.

After eight races, Team Neverland steadily maintains the lead with 19 points, while all other crews are very close to each other within a margin of just 6 points. The tight spread of points across the entirety of the leaderboard and the number of teams scoring first place finishes is testament to how competitive this Mediterranean fleet has become and seeing newcomers with race wins shows huge potential for growth in the class.

Racing concludes Sunday in Monaco where the winner of the opening act on the 2017 M32 Series Mediterranean will be decided.
