ight air today on Lake Geneva and only one race was held.
Onboard Artemis Racing we had our worst race finishing 6th. Alinghi was 5th and C.E.R. was 4th. Velti Group won the race in the 7 knots of wind which dropped to 3 knots by the finish.
The final standing for the event are: 1. C.E.R. 11 points 2. Alinghi 12 points 3. Artemis 14 points
Not bad for our first event. We are happy with that and look forward to a fun season.
We were not fast upwind in the conditions today but we observed some things the others were doing so we look forward to trying them in two weeks at the Grand Prix de Crans.
I am off to Austria tonight to joining the Katusha team at the RC44 Championship Tour event there. Training tomorrow and a "long distance" race on Tuesday, Match Racing Wednesday and Fleet Racing Thursday through Sunday.
