In a day that challenged even the most experienced Extreme 40 sailors at Act 2 of the Extreme Sailing Series™ in Singapore, it was hard for the teams to keep their cool under the blazing Singaporean sun.
Realteam finished in 5th place with 141 points tonight.
In the light airs, the Extreme 40 sailors crawled around the boats, trying to make as little movement as possible and keeping the number of manoeuvres on the race course to a minimum was essential and with running race starts held just metres from the VIP area, winning the start and finding clean air often led to winning races.
Race Director Phil Lawrence summed up the conditions: « It’s very difficult because the wind comes down the course in streaks and there are calm patches so the sailors have to pick their way around. It is really shifty.”
