Race 4 – Sled Grind Out Long Coastal Race Win
Sled repeated their coastal race success that they enjoyed last month in Sibenik when they won today’s short coastal race at the Zadar Royal Cup. In a light NW’ly breeze they led early on the first, opening windward-leeward circuit and were able to extend away and were never challenged thereafter. During the approach to the first windward mark, Quantum Racing struck Platoon and lost their bowsprit but still managed to rescue a seventh place.
Platoon took second with Luna Rossa third and so the Italian team still lead the regatta by three points over Harm Müller-Spreer’s world champions with Phoenix now third.
The 52 SUPER SERIES Zadar Royal Cup will take place from 20-24 June. State-of-the-art live boat tracking technology will allow 52 SUPER SERIES fans to follow their favourite teams every day of the regatta, with LIVE images broadcast on the final three days. 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.
