TP52 Worlds: A Tough Day on Artemis

A tough day on Artemis today. We had just one race in very light conditions. We had a bad start really never recovered from that and finished 8th. Bribon won the race and now leads the Championship with Quantum second and we are third.

While there were moments when we were threatening to make a good comeback, we seemed to meet other boats who were plenty happy to thwart our progress as we were regatta leaders this morning.

Tomorrow's forecast is a bit better with a Northeast wind forecast around 10-12 knots.

We will race the coastal race tomorrow which is basically a lot of zig zagging around the Palma bay. The race has a 1.5 factor so it is important to have a good one.
