Emirates Team New Zealand

1 AV 2

With a win in the third race Emirates Team New Zealand lead after Day 1 of the Region of Murcia Regatta on the Bay of Cagliari.


The regatta trophy holders and current Audi MedCup champions started well and then stayed on top of a series of big changes in wind direction and strength throughout the race. Although the race started in a relatively benign 6-7 knots, the breeze shifted sharply left on the first beat and the Kiwis were able to profit as it built up to more than 20kts at times.

At the top of the second beat Matador were able to close right up to Emirates Team New Zealand as the breeze shifted right again, all of the top three boats reaching into the windward mark on starboard tack.

Matador took second place and lie third overall behind Audi A1 powered by ALL4ONE.
