DAY 4 COPA DEL RAY.
Today’s menu consisted of two windward / leeward races for all classes except for Gaastra IRC 1, BMW ORC 1 and BMW ORC 2, which sailed a 20.93 nautical miles coastal race around the bay of Palma. The one-design classes Nespresso X-35 and Herbalife J80 have reached eight races sailed, so all the teams can discard their worst result of the week.
At the top of the provisional overall there are Americans “Shockwave” (Gaastra IRC 0) and “Quantum Racing” (Barclays 52 Super Series), Italians “Hurakan” (Gaastra IRC 1) and “Lelagain” (Nespresso X-35), Russian “Bronenosec” (Gazprom Swan 60) and Spanish “Rats on Fire” (BMW ORC 1), “Movistar” (BMW ORC 2) and “Noticia” (Herbalife J80). With just two days for the end, the candidates to the title begin to stand out at the top of the rankings, but nothing is decided yet.
The thermal wind was on time again to its appointment with the fleet, with intensities between nine and 12 knots all day long, always from the south-southwest. A similar scenario is expected for the rest of the week.
