Race 5 – Quantum Racing Close the Gap
Quantum Racing took a gun-to-gun win in Race 5 of the Menorca 52 SUPER SERIES regatta to move closer to the overall circuit lead on the penultimate day of the 2017 season. With Platoon fourth and Azzurra sixth, Azzurra now hold on to a four-point margin going into the day’s second race with Quantum Racing now just one point astern of Platoon on the circuit standings.
Quantum Racing moved clear early in the first beat, using the small shifts in the middle left of the course to ease ahead. Gladiator took second and now lie second on the regatta standings. Azzurra, once more, were in recovery mode fighting back in the 8-9kts E’ly breeze from ninth at the top mark to cross the line in sixth.
