Race 2 – Bronenosec Steal The Win
While Vladimir Liubomirov’s Bronenosec came back on the final run to win Race 2, a second place for Harm Müller-Spreer’s Platoon crew sees them reduce their deficit on the overall 52 SUPER SERIES leaderboard on Azzurra and Quantum Racing.
Bronenosec – with Italy’s Francesco Bruni working with Morgan Larson in the afterguard of the Russian-flagged team – made a positive move down the last run by holding to the left in more pressure to take over the lead. Correspondingly there was a frustrating, painful loss for Quantum Racing who dropped from having a nice 250m lead round the first circuit of the two lap course to finish seventh as the breeze shut off on the right where they were.
Platoon’s second, with circuit leaders Azzurra fourth, takes the German team to within six points of the season’s leaders while Quantum Racing are now 13pts off the lead.
Regatta leaders at the Menorca 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week are Azzurra with a 1,4 scoreline ahead of Gladiator’s 2,3 on countback.
The Menorca 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week will take place from 19-23 September. On the final three days of racing (from Thursday through to Saturday), live 52 SUPER SERIES TV will be broadcast direct from the water coupled with expert commentary and analysis. Shows start 15-minutes before racing, and can be enjoyed via the 52 SUPER SERIES homepage – www.52SUPERSERIES.com – or via the app. Never miss a beat. Virtual Eye boat tracking and audio commentary will be available from the start of the regatta.
