Summary Race 8

A win for Ran Racing ahead of Quantum Racing locks the two title contenders on the same points tally after eight races in the 52 SUPER SERIES at Quantum Key West.

In a fading breeze which dropped from 16kts to ten on the finish line, Azzurra dropped badly on the first run when they lost contact with the leaders. They gybed away early to the left downwind, separating away only to round the leeward gate in sixth after the breeze appeared to collapse for them slightly.

Ran Racing executed a peach of a start which allowed them to control Quantum Racing early, while Interlodge posted another strong finish in third.

Although Niklas Zennstrom’s team had a solid lead across the finish, Interlodge, Sled and Hooligan were all overlapped with each other on the finish line, showing once again how every single metre counts in this fleet.
