RACE 2: Powerful display by Azzurra
Audi Azzurra Sailing Team won the second race of the Audi Valencia Cup with a powerful display in the brisk conditions. They were ahead at the first windward marrk and increased their lead with a good first run.
Two successive winning guns for the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda crew gives them a good overall lead in the regatta, but more significantly with Quantum Racing in third, points are now even between the two on the 52 Super Series standings. An incredibly close finish between second and fifth saw Ed Bairds crew just grab third on the line from Gladiator on the strength of one final gybe to the committee boat end of the line in the last 50 metres of the final run. Ran took fifth but all four boats were overlapped, once more proving how closeley matched the creme de la creme of the 52 Super Series fleet are!
