Ran Racing win first windward leewaard

Niklas Zennstrom’s Rán Racing made it two back to back wins at the AUDI TP52 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP when they crosses the finish line of Race 4 today, triumphing in the first windward-leeward of the series.

After one general recall, under threat of a black flag penalty, Rán Racing won the start off the pin end of the line, giving themselves a small but immediate advantage over Quantum Racing. With the left side favoured Rán Racing lead round the first mark ahead of Quantum Racing with Phoenix in third and Gladiator fourth.

In the light 5 to 8kts NWly breeze there were few passing opportunities but the French team on Paprec Recyclage did well in fifth.

Rán Racing and Quantum Racing now share the same points aggregate after three races.
