Team Russia

1 AV 4

11:20


And that's the start gun, a downwind start, front row are PUMA, Ericsson 4 and Green Dragon.

11:25

A great start from PUMA, perfectly timed, really fast with a big masthead gennaker. No shortage of breeze at the moment, building nicely. PUMA are laying the first mark, with that sail up.

11:35

The order round the first mark was PUMA, Ericsson 4, Green Dragon, Team Russia, Telefonica Black, Telefonica Blue, Ericsson 3 and Delta Lloyd.

12:00

Ericsson 4 go round second, ease the sails and smoke off after PUMA on a reach. Telefonica Blue have had a great leg, they are third round the mark, and set off after Torben Grael and Ken Read. Green Dragon lose a place, but go round fourth.

Ericsson 3 have caught the headsail on the rig, and shredded it, the will have to change the sail.

Team Russia was fifth, then Telefonica Black in sixth place.

12:15

PUMA's biggest problem is that they can't get the Code Zero unfurled, they still have the small headsail up. But they are into the new breeze and are moving again.
