Quarter Finals progress so far:
QF1 : Synergy (5th in RR) v Mascalzone Latino (4th in RR)
Two races were sailed and the scoreso far is one all in a best of 3 series so one more race to be sailed - the race committe intend to try to sail this race before sunset tonight. If this is not achieved then the first race will count so Synergy will move forward to the semi-finals.

If there is time:
QF3 : Artemis (2nd in RR) v TEAMORIGIN (7th in RR)
QF4 : ALL4ONE (1st in RR) v Luna Rossa (8th in RR)

If there is not time to complete QF3 and 4, the top ranked two teams move to the semi finals and lower ranked two sail off against each other - the intention is to race 5th to 8th places race-offs tomorrow.
