Race 3 – Platoon Apply Pressure
Harm Müller-Spreer’s Platoon team apply yet more pressure on the 2017 52 SUPER SERIES circuit leaders by winning Race 3 of the Menorca 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week, the deciding event of the six-regatta season.
Platoon started at the signal boat end of the line and were able to lead around the windward mark from Quantum Racing in second, with Paprec in third. Racing in a modest SE’ly breeze of 9-10kts, Azzurra rounded the top turn in seventh and managed to recover one place by the finish line.
So the top of the circuit leaderboard sees Azzurra holding on by two points from Azzurra with Quantum Racing’s second place leaving them ten points behind Azzurra and eight behind Platoon, now leaders of the Menorca regatta.
The Menorca 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week will take place from 19-23 September. On the final three days of racing (from Thursday through to Saturday), live 52 SUPER SERIES TV will be broadcast direct from the water coupled with expert commentary and analysis. Shows start 15-minutes before racing, and can be enjoyed via the 52 SUPER SERIES homepage – www.52SUPERSERIES.com – or via the app. Never miss a beat. Virtual Eye boat tracking and audio commentary will be available from the start of the regatta.
