RACE 3: Rán wins!

Niklas Zennstrom and crew of Ran won the third race of the Audi Valencia Cup seizing the win from another very close finish.

Audi Azzurra lead throughout the race until the final run when a big shift and a strong gust blew its way down the course. Audi Azzurra lost out to Quantum Racing on the finish line, not only losing second but they also hit the finish boat with their kite as the breeze headed so sharply that all three leading boats had to alter course sharply. So with their resulting 5th place, from having lead the race throughout, Audi Azzurra Sailing team lead the Valencia Cup standings by one point over Audi Sailing Team powered by All4ONE with all three other 52s locked on 10 points

´Its incredible we sailed a perfect day until the final 50metres of the last race and end up second overall! smiled Bruno Zirilli, Azzurra´s navigator.
