Race 4 – First win for Bronenosec
Niklas Zennström’s crew on Rán retain the overall regatta lead after the second day of racing, thanks to a solid second place in Race 4 behind Vladimir Liubumirov’s Bronenosec which won their first ever 52 SUPER SERIES race on only their second day on the world’s leading grand prix monohull circuit.
Bronenosec lead around the top mark with Sled second and Rán third, Takashi Okura’s team only just tacking clear of the Zennström crew at the turning buoy. Rán rounded the leeward gate just ahead and were able to hold off Sled in a litle tacking match near the top of the second beat. Platoon crossed fourth ahead of Alegre to keep Rán at the top of the regatta leaderboard. Valencia delivered perfect sea breeze conditions which are forecast to continue tomorrow.
