Race 8 – Sled Take the Bullet, but Luna Rossa Win
An incredible comeback in the third and final race of the day, moving from 10th to second, sees Luna Rossa lead the 52 SUPER SERIES Valencia Sailing Week into the final day by just one single point.
The Italian America’s Cup team were penalised on the approach to the windward mark for a foul on Alegre but then impeded Paprec while they were taking their turns. But despite dropping down to 11th, then 10th, they made a big gain on the second upwind, working out to the left to move up to third at the second windward turn.
So Luna Rossa lead Quantum Racing by a single point into the final day. Platoon leapfrog Azzurra to hold the second step on the season standings.
Racing at the Valencia 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week starts Tuesday and finishes Saturday with the end of season prize-giving on Saturday night. All of the action will be broadcast live at www.52SUPERSERIES.com and via the app throughout the whole regatta on 52 SUPER SERIES TV with live commentary and expert analysis throughout each race.
