Race 1 won by Platoon
Harm Muller Spreer’s German team on Platoon scored their first ever win on their new boat when they lead the TP52 World Championship fleet all the way around the two lap first windward leeward race of the regatta.
Racing in a gentle 6 to 8kts Bay of Palma sea breeze Platoon broke the trap fast and well positioned off the pin end, most left boat of the fleet. They gained immediate leverage on Azzurra as the two worked that flank of the course.
Quantum Racing worked well to gain a good third place, gaining nicely on the second beat, just holding off Phoenix which finished fourth.
