Quantum racing win Race 6 thriller

From the breeziest windward leeward race of the season yet, a thrilling victory for Quantum Racing takes the 52 SUPER SERIES clear at the top of the Settimana delle Bocche week standings.

Gladiator lead around the top mark after making a big gain to the right of the first leg with Azzurra and Bronenosec giving chase. On the second windy beat Quantum Racing recognised the big shift to the left and made a big recovery to take the lead and set up a fabulous head to head surfing match with Azzurra in 22 kts of wind. With 100 metres to the finish the two rivals were absolutely bow to bow but the defending champions and winners here last year managed to break the line first to take the overall regatta lead by two points ahead of Azzurra.
