Tita and Banti (ITA) taking the fast lane

The Nacra gold fleet held the inner harbor for today’s morning racing, and with the brisk Northeasterly breeze filling in overnight, the course would emerge as a tricky test of 3-lap racing for the catamaran sailors.

The Danish team Cenholt/Lubeck held second going into the morning, after a stellar first day of gold fleet racing where they’d scored a 3,2,1. They continued their run with a spectacular first race, starting near the pin, nailing the port layline and rounding the top mark first to run away with the win and into the overall lead. GBR showed the depth of their squad with Rashley/Giovanetti winning the pin to round 2nd at the top, though they slipped to 5th by race end. Regatta leaders GBR’s Gimson/Burnett and 3rd placed ITA’s Tita/Banti both faltered, scoring 23rd and 13th respectively, but four races meant the first gold fleet drop came into play.

The second race of the day had more mixing up of the fleet as well as the wind strength. A huge call at the start had the Germans Polgar/Werner port tack the fleet to head out right, but the top left paid off for FRA’s Vaireaux/Ancian, who had come into the day in 20th position. They led for most of the race before slipping to the Italians Tita/Banti after a split on the second upwind. The tradeoff of the left positioning on the race course versus the bad air of the spinnakers had gone in favor of the Italians, who had split right at the bottom mark, and into the lead for the race, and then the regatta, as behind them Cenholt and Gimson finished 14th and 15th across the line. The aussies showed their squad can still perform even without Waterhouse/Darmanin, with Lisa Darmanin’s brother Paul taking 3rd and the Outteridges finishing 4th.

The final race of the day the Italians proved they’re the team to beat, solidifying their previous win with another solid start in the middle and another well executed upwind to round the top mark first and never look back. The Brits looked like they had a full squad game plan of heading left, with three of their boats fighting for the pin and Saxton/Boniface winning the inter-country battle, rounding the top mark second and maintaining to the finish. Gimson/Burnet steadily climbed back through the fleet to secure 3rd for the race, thus stemming the bleeding to drop only to 3rd overall.    The three point spread this morning from 1st to 3rd has shuffled positions and become a 14 point spread, but as we saw today anything can happen out on this race course, and every team can perform well in races out there!
