The first race went to Oman Sail Masirah – Pete Cumming and Chris Draper throwing the gauntlet down to the other teams. With the absence of BMW ORACLE Racing, Oman Sail Masirah go into this 3rd round of the iShares Cup Extreme 40 Sailing Series as favourites and the team wasted no time in stepping up to the mark with another emphatic win in race 2. Oman Sail stable-mate Renaissance driven by Loick Peyron finished 2nd and both BT and Team iShares were starting to put in some strong performances – 3rd and 4th place in the second race.
Regular Groupama 40 skipper Franck Cammas is currently hurtling across the Atlantic at high-speed trying to break the record but his Extreme 40 team here helmed by Gildas Philippe got a great start to race 3 and kept their cool to score their first win at the UK round. As the wind veered the nine-boat Extreme 40 fleet were suddenly in a different game – tacking upwind and gybing downwind adding an element of both opportunity and excitement as the breeze strengthened. But the Oman Sail team continued to pile on the pressure – Peyron took Renaissance across the line in 2nd and Masirah in 3rd, finishing half a boat length ahead of Nick Moloney on BT.

I helgen avgjordes SSECS /SSOCS/SSZCS regattan i Stenungsund. 250 seglare från Sverige, Norge, Danmark, Finland och Tyskland mötte upp i ett strålande vårväder med lätta vindar. Under lördagen lite väl lätta, vilket gjorde att endast två av tre planerade seglingar kunde genomföras. På söndagen kom lite mer vind och planerade seglingar genomfördes. Det tävlades i E-jolle, Optimist och Zoom 8, vilket kan uttolkas från de något kryptiska förkortningarna i tävlingens namn.
