Cape Town Race To Conclude Soon

There were different division races in Maserati Cape Town sailing week that was recently concluded. Hollard Jacana was able to gain victory in IRC 2 Division. The yacht that was their vessel was able to make the most of the wind conditions.

The crew made well calculated move as per the wind direction. On the second day of the races there was a south easterly wind blowing with a speed of 15 to 20 knots. This suited the crew members as they needed to have a good wind for the cruiser racer vessel. Indeed, the boat was able to make good speed in such conditions. The crew from Corfu also analyzed how the wind was and anticipated what might be coming forth. As a result, they recalibrated and adjusted their sails and speed. Such a strategy paid off.

Final 4 advance at the Busan Cup

Spithill, Le Berre and Groeneveld celebrated Halloween by making it to the semis of Busan Cup Women’s International Match Race, along with World #1 Ulrikkeholm Klinkby beating Women’s International Match Racing Series topper Shea of Epic Racing 3 – 1 for the last semi-final position.

Danish skipper told that Maggie pushed us a lot in the pre-starts, but they found the right shifts and had good boat handling. Now they are going for a win, in Busan and in the Women’s International Match Racing Series. They had really close races as well as most of them could have gone either way. They did the best they could, but now it is not in their hands anymore.
