Race 2 – Quantum Racing Lead After Day 1
A win in the second race at the Sibenik 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week takes Quantum Racing to the top of the leaderboard after the first day of racing of the 2018 season.
With Dean Barker steering and Terry Hutchinson on tactics they made the best start and timed perfectly their tack over to control the benefit on the right side of the first upwind. They led at the top mark and were never passed. Tony Langley’s Gladiator team with Morgan Larson on tactics sailed a solid second with Sled in third.
As the wind picked up to a pleasant 14-15kts it moved from 245 degrees to 260 degrees to 290 degrees requiring the tacticians to stay in check with the changes. Sled took third. With Platoon in fourth they share the same tally as points score leaders Quantum Racing. Onda lie third overall after a second and seventh places.
