Four in the frame?
In reality there are probably four boats with a good chance of winning the first 52 SUPER SERIES regatta, Quantum Key West 2013.
Tied on points are Azzurra and Rán Racing. Three out of four days so far have ended up with the top two teams on the same points, so it would not be a surprise to see this regatta decided on tie-break.
Quantum Racing are just one point behind in third place after a solid pair of results yesterday. Several of the afterguard members from these top three teams were predicting an outbreak of match racing between two title protagonists which might open up a chance for the other two to sail their own races and spring a surprise overall win. From fourth place, Interlodge, are very much in touch after their second place yesterday lying just five points off the lead.
A strong high-pressure system that is bringing cold temperatures and snow to the north is bringing perfect sunshine, warm temeratures and 15-20 knot northeasterlies again here inKey West.
Two races are being run today to bring the total to 10 for the week, yet the outcome is far from clear: podium positions will be known only at the end of this last day of combat in the 52 SUPER SERIES .
