Solid Quantum Racing Are Holding Off Consistent Rivals in Cascais

CASCAIS 52 SUPER SERIES SAILING WEEK

(Wednesday 17th July, Cascais) – Two solid second places from the windiest day of racing so far of the 2019 52 SUPER SERIES sees Quantum Racing three points clear at the top of the Cascais 52 SUPER SERIES Sailing Week. 
Although the winds topped 25 knots at times and the TP52 fleet were in their element, long, fast downwinds, and muscular, tough upwinds – the pattern to the breezes was not easy to read. Winning proved more complex than simply claiming the key berth at the signal boat, taking the favoured right side of the course and then protecting.

July 18th Cape Panwa, Phuket: Sailors awoke to a sunny, blue sky, with small puffy white clouds and some wind during breakfast. By the time crews arrived at the beach and out to the moored boats, dark clouds were rolling across the island and before the 1000 start time, opened up with a huge tropical deluge, that lasted the rest of the morning. AP over H pennants were displayed on the start boat and ashore, indicating the boats return to their moorings and sailors to await further instructions. The race committee stayed out testing other sites and although some improvememts were on the horizon, it would take over an hour for the boats to return to the course area, by 1300 they called it a day and everyone settled in for refreshments at various locations on the island.

By AsianYachting MultiMedia
July 16th Cape Panwa: Despite being a little over six weeks since the 2018-19 season ending Samui Regatta, the racing community are moving headlong into the 2019-20 Season opening Cape Panwa Hotel Phuket Raceweek. Strategically positioned to take advantage of Phuket’s ‘Green Season’, it comes early in the season and is designed to take advantage of the South West Monsoon conditions. Over the years this has varied from dead flat calms, to storm strewn and blustery SW trade winds. The Title Sponsor and Host Venue, Cape Panwa Hotel and Kantary Bay Hotel continue on with the signature ‘one regatta, one venue’ format, four nights of grand waterside parties, free-flow of drinks and sumptuous food, where crews can expect plenty of action on and off the water.
