Californian Morgan Larson to make Extreme Sailing Series™ return in San Diego

Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 7, San Diego will see the return of former Series champion Morgan Larson. 

The Californian will skipper Team Extreme San Diego, the second US wildcard to be announced following the entry of Lupe Tortilla Demetrio, in the penultimate stage of the season from 19 – 22 October.

Larson, who narrowly missed out on 2016 victory as skipper and helm of Oman Air, has a history of success in the ultimate Stadium Racing championship. The Santa Cruz born sailor helmed Alinghi to victory in 2014, and he is looking forward to giving it another shot.

“After a year away from the Extreme Sailing Series I am excited to cut my teeth again on the flying GC32. The format of the racing, the competition and the speed of the foiling cats is infectious and I’m confident San Diego will deliver as a great venue for the Series,” said Larson, who comes fresh from competing on board Argo in the GC32 Racing Tour in Calvi.

“I’m looking forward to representing my state and country; competing on your home court is always great,” he added. 

Larson’s stellar all-American crew line-up includes three of Oracle Team USA’s America’s Cup sailors: Andrew Campbell, Cooper Dressler and Matt Cassidy who will take the positions of mainsail trimmer, floater and headsail trimmer respectively.

EXTREME SAILING - ESTADOS UNIDOS

 

Countdown begins for spectacular Extreme Sailing Series™ San Diego debut

The penultimate Act of the 2017 Extreme Sailing Series™ starts in San Diego in one week’s time. The eight-strong fleet – including two US-flagged wildcard squads – will race in San Diego Bay, a new venue for the Series, as thousands watch from the public Race Village on Harbor Island, from 19 – 22 October.

The Extreme Sailing Series will pick up where it left off in Cardiff in August, with a podium tight on points and everything to play for. The first six Acts of the season have seen an intense three-way battle between SAP Extreme Sailing Team, Oman Air and Alinghi, with each boasting a stint in pole position.

Current leader SAP Extreme Sailing Team is excited about the challenge of racing in San Diego, the second of three new venues this season alongside Barcelona, Spain, and Los Cabos, Mexico.

“We’re looking forward to going to the US and Mexico to mix it up a bit. When you go to a venue you have been to many times before it is like coming home, but with new venues you are more alert and observant and focused on trying to figure everything out as quick as you can,” said co-skipper Rasmus Køstner

Currently just two points shy of the Danes, Oman Air’s skipper Phil Robertson is also looking forward to racing in California and remains characteristically calm and collected about the competition ahead.

“I am very excited about racing in San Diego Bay. It is big enough to get the boats ripping along but close enough to the shore to give spectators a great show,” said Robertson.

MCNAMARA E A MERCEDES

Garrett McNamara e Nelson Évora marcam presença no novo espaço Mercedes-Benz no CascaiShopping.
 
• Mercedes-Benz continua a liderar e a mostrar que a inovação e as ações disruptivas fazem parte do seu ADN; 
• Novo espaço com conteúdos interativos e atividades lúdicas todos os meses;
• Conceito de proximidade da Marca com os seus clientes num local premium e de elevada visibilidade;
• Inauguração oficial contou com a presença de dois atletas que desafiam as leis da física – Garrett McNamara e Nelson Évora.
 
Em 2013, a Mercedes-Benz surpreendeu todos quando decidiu abrir a primeira loja de uma marca automóvel num centro comercial, definindo assim uma nova forma de estar em solo nacional. Depois da abertura da 1ª Concept Store, no Centro Comercial Oeiras Parque, em abril de 2013, e tendo funcionado apenas 3 meses como um projeto-piloto, a Marca de Estugarda decidiu um ano mais tarde inaugurar um novo espaço no CascaiShopping. Agora, passados três anos, a Mercedes-Benz remodelou totalmente este espaço. A Marca pretende assim estar mais próxima dos seus clientes, com um conceito inovador, mais informal e onde todos os visitantes podem experienciar o futuro do automóvel.
 
Localizado no piso 0 do CascaiShopping, este novo espaço apresenta-se como uma extensão do mundo Mercedes-Benz, onde o design, a tecnologia e a inovação estarão sempre presentes com vários pontos de interesse para clientes e potenciais clientes.
 

 
Aqui, é possível conhecer os últimos modelos ou mesmo efetuar um test drive na hora. Todos os visitantes poderão configurar digitalmente um novo Mercedes-Benz e iniciar o processo de encomenda de imediato. Ecrãs interativos, conteúdos inovadores de Marca e um infindável grupo de atividades lúdicas farão parte deste espaço que irá contar com uma programação mensal para os visitantes do CascaiShopping. A Mercedes-Benz reforça assim a sua estratégia de aproximação a clientes sem que para isso seja intrusiva no seu quotidiano.
 
Nas palavras de Jorge Aguiar, Diretor de Marketing Mercedes-Benz: “A Mercedes-Benz tem vindo a trilhar o seu percurso de sucesso em Portugal, com iniciativas que a colocam atualmente como a Marca Nº1 no top of mind dos Portugueses. Este é o fruto de um conjunto de iniciativas disruptivas, das quais se destaca a abertura de espaços físicos de Marca localizados onde as pessoas se encontram hoje em dia. Queremos estar mais próximos dos nossos clientes e acreditamos que as redes sociais e o digital, em geral, não são suficientes para dar a conhecer o que é o ADN da Mercedes-Benz que pretende vir a ser a Marca Nº1 no mundo.”
 
Este novo espaço será gerido em parceria com o Concessionário Oficial da Marca, o C. Santos V.P., sendo a porta de entrada para o mundo Mercedes-Benz na região de Cascais. Todos os meses existirá um tema associado à Marca e que irá promover uma série de atividades para o público em geral, mas também, e em específico, para clientes e convidados. Oradores convidados irão partilhar ideias, inspirações e emoções com os visitantes e outras atividades relacionadas com o tema do mês estarão em destaque, seja, a família, a mobilidade autónoma, a eletrificação do automóvel ou uma simples sessão de autógrafos no lançamento de um novo escritor. 
 
Outubro arranca com o tema surf e em especial com as ondas gigantes na Nazaré, onde a Mercedes-Benz é a única marca presente o ano inteiro com uma estrutura de apoio aos atletas internacionais e locais. 
 
Garrett McNamara, embaixador internacional da Mercedes-Benz e detentor do record mundial da maior onda já surfada, e Nelson Évora, embaixador do C. Santos VP desde 2016, Medalha de ouro no Triplo Salto nos Europeus de pista coberta, em Belgrado com 17,20 metros e Medalha de Ouro nos Jogos Olímpicos de Pequim em 2008, foram os dois oradores deste dia inaugural, onde partilharam as suas emoções como representantes da

marca Mercedes-Benz e dos desafios que tem tido como atletas de alta competição. O improvável de juntar dois atletas de duas modalidades que à partida não se cruzam, mas que na realidade tem muito em comum: objetivos, foco e superação.  
 
Concessionário C. Santos V.P. O C. Santos V.P. atua no setor automóvel em Portugal desde 1912, e desde 1936 que representa a marca Mercedes-Benz. É atualmente o maior concessionário e oficina autorizada na venda de viaturas, peças e prestação de serviços após venda das marcas Mercedes-Benz, smart e AMG. Em 2016, o volume de faturação suplantou os 155 milhões de euros, fruto da comercialização de mais de 4.000 viaturas, e de uma média diária de receção de mais de 200 viaturas nas oficinas. O C. Santos V.P. emprega atualmente mais de 420 colaboradores, e tem uma forte implantação nacional com onze instalações em zonas estratégicas de Lisboa, Cascais, Margem Sul, Porto e na Madeira (Funchal).

PIRELLI 1900

 

PIRELLI 1900: ESPÍRITO DESPORTIVO NA SUA MÁXIMA EXPRESSÃO

 

DESVENDADO PELA PIRELLI DESIGN E PELA TECNORIB
DURANTE O CANNES YACHTING FESTIVAL 2017

– A Tecnorib ampliou a sua gama de barcos semi-rígidos com o lançamento do seu novo modelo topo de gama: o Pirelli 1900, apresentado em primeira mão durante o Festival de Iates de Cannes, França. Esta criação reúne o atrativo, o dinamismo e o estilo único da Pirelli, e revela-se como um projeto emblemático da Pirelli Design.

O novo Pirelli 1900 junta-se aos seus “irmãos” mais pequenos, o Pirelli 880, o Pirelli 1100 e o Pirelli 1400. De facto, este último serviu de referência e de inspiração para os designers, que reinterpretaram as suas linhas e estilo para culminar no novo Pirelli 1900. Este modelo tem 18,5 metros de comprimento, 5 metros de largura e 16 toneladas de peso. Estas são as características que o situam como o “porta-estandarte” do estaleiro e que materializam o frutífero acordo entre a Tecnorib e a Pirelli, em vigor há uma década.

Tal como no Pirelli 1400, protagonista de um dos maiores sucessos da Tecnorib no mercado, o design do 1900 foi confiado à Mannerfelt, que incutiu toda a sua experiência no mundo dos cascos de barcos de competição.

O maior dos Tecnorib segue rigorosamente a filosofia da Pirelli, ou seja, uma construção seguindo os mais altos standards de qualidade. Isto pode ser apreciado no próprio design do teto da embarcação, fabricado a 100% em fibra de carbono com o objetivo de baixar o centro de gravidade e de melhorar o rendimento. Mais abaixo, na sala das máquinas, escondem-se dois motores MAN i6 de 800 CV de potência unitária encaixados nas respetivas hélices supercavitantes mediante uma transmissão Top System T65. Permitindo ao Pirelli 1900 alcançar uma velocidade de ponta de 45 nós e é fácil de manobrar a qualquer velocidade graças ao sistema de regulação automática do assento do barco.

O novo Pirelli 1900 concilia altas prestações com o máximo conforto a velocidade de cruzeiro; embora albergue o ADN dos pneus de Fórmula 1 da Pirelli, não foi desenhado para a competição, mas sim como barco semi-rígido, com tubos insufláveis reais e a rigidez e navegabilidade que este tipo de embarcações garante. O design do casco permite oferecer as máximas prestações sem comprometer o conforto, já que o seu interior dispõe de uma altura de até dois metros.

A nova embarcação da Tecnorib retoma as linhas originais do Pirelli 1400, mas reinterpretadas numa nova e inovadora perspetiva, que relembra o estilo do seu “irmão” mais pequeno, mas com um maior foco no desenvolvimento das zonas comuns, nas quais verdadeiramente se desfruta da vida a bordo. Com um estilo inconfundivelmente Tecnorib, a característica mais significativa do design é o teto de carbono, que se expande até proteger o cockpit. Elaborado como se de um todo se tratasse, a linha geral culmina na ideia fundamental de espírito desportivo, mas também de luxo e de modernidade: um tributo à história e à identidade associadas ao logótipo do P lungo. Na proa destaca-se o amplo espaço para banhos de Sol e, na popa, a possibilidade de personalizar por completo o painel de comandos de acordo com as preferências do proprietário.

Como sempre, a distintiva marca dos pneus Pirelli figura nos tubos insufláveis, tal como em todos os modelos de topo da gama. Mas neste caso o padrão utilizado é o do Cinturato Blue Wet, o pneu de água da Fórmula 1, homenageando deste modo toda a experiência acumulada pela Pirelli no design de pneus para as condições mais extremas.

Em contraste com o forte aspeto desportivo do exterior, o habitáculo interior proporciona um ambiente elegante e quase doméstico. Cada componente está em perfeita harmonia e equilíbrio com o seu redor. Materiais quentes, como a madeira branqueada, combinam com lacados de efeito metálico em cores claras. Os camarotes apresentam telas elegantes numa configuração que propicia o relax e a sofisticação. As casas de banho combinam superfícies em Corian com azulejos para culminar numa perfeita atmosfera.

A configuração básica do Pirelli 1900 conta no seu interior com dois grandes camarotes, duas casas de banho e uma sala de estar central, que contém o galley, uma pequena copa transformável numa cama adicional e uma mesa de refeições. A cabine principal situa-se na proa e inclui uma cama dupla em posição longitudinal, com a sua própria casa de banho. Na proa, à esquerda, situa-se o camarote de convidados. Nesta mesma zona do barco, mas a estibordo, encontra-se uma grande e prática zona para arrumação. Como segunda opção, esse espaço pode ser usado como terceira cabine para a tripulação.

SAP Extreme Sailing Team triumphs in Cardiff to reclaim 2017 lead

It went down to the wire between SAP Extreme Sailing Team and Alinghi in the thrilling finale of Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 6, Cardiff, but the Danes pipped the Swiss to the post in the final throes of battle. The Danish squad claimed its third win of the season to go top of the overall leaderboard.

Oman Air was forced to settle for third and hand over the 2017 lead to SAP Extreme Sailing Team, after Phil Robertson and his men struggled to find their form of the previous two Acts.

Over 90,000 spectators turned out over the Bank Holiday weekend to watch the international fleet in action on Cardiff Bay, and were rewarded for their efforts today with six nail-biting races and plenty of sunshine.

For a moment, the cracks began to show for SAP Extreme Sailing Team, allowing Alinghi to claw back vital points and enter the final double-points race neck-and-neck with its main rival. But, a disastrous start dashed any hopes of victory for the Swiss team.

“It feels really good,” said the winning helm, Adam Minoprio. “We went out there and started strong. The wheels fell off for a bit in the middle, and then we put the pressure on for the final race."

Flat calms on Cardiff Bay hinder sailing on penultimate day

Although the day was blessed with glorious sunshine, much to the delight of the thousands of spectators lining Cardiff Bay, unfortunately there was no wind to go with it. The scoreboard remains unchanged after the penultimate day of Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 6, Cardiff, as no scoring racing is completed.

For leader SAP Extreme Sailing Team, it means it maintains its four-point lead going into the final day, while the rest of the international fleet has everything riding on tomorrow to close the gap.

Oman Air skipper Phil Robertson remains unfazed: “On a racecourse like this, nine points isn’t much of a lead. I think SAP Extreme Sailing Team has more to lose than to gain out there tomorrow. We are where we are so there’s not much we can do about it for now, we just have one day to make it happen.”

Race Director John Craig explained the conditions faced by the fleet: “Today we were waiting for the sea breeze to come in and it looked like it would. We ended up with about five knots at one point but it wasn’t stable enough to race, and then it just disappeared.

“We’re hoping that tomorrow we will get seven to eight knots of more stable breeze and that we’ll get some more racing in. Unfortunately, today we just got skunked,” added Craig.

SAP Extreme Sailing Team steals the lead on day two in Cardiff

Four podium finishes, including two bullets, were enough for SAP Extreme Sailing Team to take the overnight lead on day two of the Extreme Sailing Series™ in Cardiff, but Alinghi is in hot pursuit.

The crowds packing the shores of Cardiff Bay were treated to sun and a spectacular foiling display from the international fleet of GC32s, as an unexpected breeze filled in just in time for the Stadium Racing in the Welsh capital.

“We’re happy with the day. It’s very difficult not to have a couple of races that are challenging but we only had one or two, so we’re pretty happy with that,” said co-skipper and mainsail trimmer Rasmus Køstner.

“We have worked a lot on our starts and we came off the line really well today, and that makes a big difference,” added Køstner, whose Danish-squad is tied on points with leader Oman Air on the season scoreboard.

Alinghi sneaks ahead on light winds opener in Cardiff

Consistency paid off for Alinghi on the opening day of Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 6, Cardiff, as light winds prevented a full day of scoring racing. SAP Extreme Sailing Team and Oman Air took a bullet each but paired it with a finish off the podium, allowing the Swiss crew to edge ahead.

Despite the forecast earlier this week showing plenty of breeze, the wind did not materialise and only two races were completed. Alinghi demonstrated its prowess in these conditions as it bagged a brace of seconds, ending the day in the lead by one point.

“It was a really good day for us,” said co-skipper Arnaud Psarofaghis. “We had a really tricky first race, we struggled to start well but then we had a nice first downwind and came back to take second.

“There is still a lot of work to do before the end of the Act. We will just take it easy every race and see how it goes. The boat sailed really well and the guys did a fantastic job, it was really calm and a nice day to sail,” added Psarofaghis.

SAP Extreme Sailing Team follows the Swiss in second, with current season leader Oman Air making up the podium in third.

“We expected these conditions today and we were quite pleasantly surprised that we managed to get two races in,” said Oman Air skipper Phil Robertson. “We’re happy, we won the last race, it’s always nice to finish on a high.”

LIQUI MOLY COM LINHA NAUTICA

Inmartec distribui linha náutica da LIQUI MOLY

A gama completa dos produtos náuticos da LIQUI MOLY está disponível em todo o país através da Inmartec, empresa com forte tradição no setor e com uma rede e distribuição forte. Qualidade dos produtos, apoio técnico, comercial e de marketing são fatores diferenciadores. 

A distribuição da gama náutica da LIQUI MOLY em todo o país é agora assegurada pela Inmartec. A empresa com sede em Cortegaça vai distribuir a vasta gama de produtos da marca alemã através da sua rede de revendedores e diretamente aos estaleiros, num total de mais de 60 clientes diretos. A LIQUI MOLY tem uma forte tradição nos produtos náuticos, apostando forte também no mercado português.

“A LIQUI MOLY já é conhecida em vários segmentos em Portugal e estamos agora a apostar na linha Marine, que tem muita tradição já noutros países. Em Portugal há uma grande oportunidade porque o mercado já nos pedia há algum tempo para introduzir esta linha de produto pela sua qualidade reconhecida. Este é o momento de o fazer numa distribuição a nível nacional”, explica Sadhna Monteiro, diretora de marketing e de desenvolvimento de negócio.

Sérgio Santos, responsável da Inmartec, explica que “os produtos da LIQUI MOLY são muito reconhecidos em países onde a náutica é muito forte e está sempre presente nas principais feiras do setor. A Inmartec só trabalha com as melhores marcas do mercado e a LIQUI MOLY encaixa perfeitamente nessa estratégia, dando confiança também aos nossos clientes”, sublinha.

A Inmartec faz o seu negócio através de uma rede de revenda, com forte ligação às marinas, com uma presença de norte a sul do país, incluindo a Madeira e os Açores. Além disso, vende também para os estaleiros, onde a procura tem subido, também graças a uma procura cada vez maior por parte de estrangeiros que escolhem Portugal para fazer manutenção e reparação das suas embarcações. Ao todo, a Inmartec tem mais de 60 clientes diretos.

“Um dos pontos em que a LIQUI MOLY me dá muitas garantias, além da qualidade e diversidade de produtos, é o apoio técnico e comercial diretamente no mercado, além de ter armazém em Portugal. Procuro sempre apoio e serviço num parceiro”, explica Sérgio Santos, que acrescenta: “Não tenho dúvidas de que com todas estas qualidades e argumentos a LIQUI MOLY estará em breve no topo da preferência dos clientes”. 

“Por exemplo, nos navios de grandes dimensões os clientes procuram o produto com melhor qualidade para conservar e fazer a manutenção das suas embarcações. Além dos óleos, com os aditivos e os produtos de conservação, a LIQUI MOLY consegue ter uma oferta completa”, comenta o responsável da Inmartec. Além disso, acrescenta, “a nossa estratégia passa por ter sempre stock disponível para darmos uma resposta rápida. Em especial os clientes estrangeiros procuram muito os produtos LIQUI MOLY e querem o produto para esse mesmo dia. É por isso que é importante que os pontos de revenda façam também algum stock. A Inmartec está sempre na retaguarda garantindo produto disponível para uma reposição rápida das necessidades”.

Sadhna Monteiro, responsável de desenvolvimento de negócio da LIQUI MOLY Iberia explica que, “tal como noutros segmentos, a LIQUI MOLY traçou um plano de formação para a equipa da Inmartec e depois para todos os seus clientes para que tenham conhecimento dos nossos produtos e argumentos para os vender aos seus clientes”. Este é um ponto fundamental até porque, acrescenta,“este é um mercado que vive muito da confiança e esse é um pilar sólido da LIQUI MOLY.”

A LIQUI MOLYinvestiga, desenvolve, testa e produz todos os seus produtos na Alemanha,dispondo de uma gama completa para a náutica, desde as motos de água até aos navios de grande porte. A empresa alemã tem produtos para todas as épocas do ano, mesmo para as épocas baixas, altura onde são feitas as manutenções, reparações e conservação das embarcações.

Bigger racecourse and spectacular racing in prospect as the Extreme Sailing Series™ returns to Cardiff

The Extreme Sailing Series™ will bring its unique high-octane stadium-style sailing to Cardiff Bay for the sixth consecutive year from 25 – 28 August, for the sixth Act of the 2017 season.

The international fleet of seven GC32s will include British-flagged wildcard entry Team Extreme Wales, skippered by two-time British Olympian Stevie Morrison.

The ultimate Stadium Racing championship will headline the Cardiff Harbour Festival over the August Bank Holiday, with the free-entry Fan Zone, located next to the Norwegian Church, offering the perfect place to catch a glimpse of the thrilling racing.

The racecourse will be set metres from the shore and Race Director John Craig predicts plenty of foiling action from the world-class crews, with a forecast offering good winds through the weekend.

“We have increased the size of the race area to allow us to give the boats more room to stretch their legs. Cardiff is known for its sea breeze so we’re expecting some great sailing and foiling,” explained Craig. 

Current season leader Oman Air, who won at the UK venue last season, will return to the Welsh capital spurred on by its recent victories in the two previous Acts in Barcelona and Hamburg. But skipper Phil Robertson, whose team includes Series veteran Brit Pete Greenhalgh, is taking nothing for granted.

“We’ve got to turn up and work hard again. Cardiff is a very unique venue, probably with a lot of reaching and potentially a lot of breeze, so you have to set the boat up for that,” Robertson said.

Hot on the heels of the Omani syndicate, and tied on points, is SAP Extreme Sailing Team, helmed by former World Match Racing Tour champion and America’s Cup sailor Adam Minoprio.

EXTREME SAILING - ALEMANHA

 

Oman Air moves top of overall 2017 Extreme Sailing Series™ leaderboard with Hamburg victory

Oman Air took its second Act victory in a row in a thrilling Hamburg finale, despite last minute pressure from SAP Extreme Sailing Team. The triumph sees the Omani syndicate move into pole position in the overall rankings.

Red Bull Sailing Team rounds off the podium while early season leader Alinghi posted its worst result since 2012, following an action-packed, crowd-pleasing day on the River Elbe for Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 5, Hamburg, presented by Land Rover.

“We’re over the moon,” said a grinning Phil Robertson, skipper and helm of the Omani-flagged squad, who adds to his growing tally of recent sailing successes, which include wins in the World Match Racing Tour and M32 World Championship, as well as in the previous Extreme Sailing Series Act in Barcelona.

“The fight was on today and the boys fought hard. SAP Extreme Sailing Team was sailing well and getting win after win so we knew our lead was getting smaller, but we didn’t panic, which was key,” commented Robertson, whose team has sat top of the Act podium since race one. 

“I’m going to put my feet up for a week, that’s for sure,” added Robertson, whose crew included Pete Greenhalgh, Ed Smyth, James Wierzbowski and Nasser al Mashari.

The battle for glory between SAP Extreme Sailing Team and Oman Air went down to the wire, however even a win in the final double-points race wasn’t enough for the Danes, who needed to put at least two boats between them and their rival to finish ahead.

“It was super close out there. We started off strong but Oman Air sailed really cleanly and we just couldn’t catch them.” said Adam Minoprio, helm of SAP Extreme Sailing Team, whose team finishes just three points shy of the Act champion having started the day with an eight-point deficit.

EXTREME SAILING - ALEMANHA

 

Oman Air moves top of overall 2017 Extreme Sailing Series™ leaderboard with Hamburg victory

Oman Air took its second Act victory in a row in a thrilling Hamburg finale, despite last minute pressure from SAP Extreme Sailing Team. The triumph sees the Omani syndicate move into pole position in the overall rankings.

Red Bull Sailing Team rounds off the podium while early season leader Alinghi posted its worst result since 2012, following an action-packed, crowd-pleasing day on the River Elbe for Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 5, Hamburg, presented by Land Rover.

"We're over the moon," said a grinning Phil Robertson, skipper and helm of the Omani-flagged squad, who adds to his growing tally of recent sailing successes, which include wins in the World Match Racing Tour and M32 World Championship, as well as in the previous Extreme Sailing Series Act in Barcelona.

"The fight was on today and the boys fought hard. SAP Extreme Sailing Team was sailing well and getting win after win so we knew our lead was getting smaller, but we didn't panic, which was key," commented Robertson, whose team has sat top of the Act podium since race one.

"I'm going to put my feet up for a week, that's for sure," added Robertson, whose winning crew included Pete Greenhalgh, Ed Smyth, James Wierzbowski and Nasser al Mashari.

The battle for glory between SAP Extreme Sailing Team and Oman Air went down to the wire, however even a win in the final double-points race wasn't enough for the Danes, who needed to put at least two boats between them and their rival to finish ahead.

"It was super close out there. We started off strong but Oman Air sailed really cleanly and we just couldn't catch them." said Adam Minoprio, helm of SAP Extreme Sailing Team, whose team finishes just three points shy of the Act champion having started the day with an eight-point deficit.

"It was good to take the final race for bragging rights as you're only as good as your last race. We look forward to Cardiff and to getting one back on Phil, and we're really enjoying the close competition," added the Kiwi sailor, whose team drops from first to second on the 2017 podium, tied on points with the leader.

Red Bull Sailing Team finishes third and was awarded the Zhik Speed Machine Trophy, with insights from SAP, for the second Act running, for reaching the top speed of the regatta at 23.9 knots. The team remains fourth overall.

At some point during the Act, each of the top six finishers have had a turn on the podium, with the constantly shifting scoreboard demonstrating just how tricky the racing has been for the international fleet of world-class sailors.

The biggest upset of the Act sees Alinghi finish sixth and drop to third on the season scoreboard, a devastating blow for the 2016 champion, who led the 2017 rankings for the first three Acts.

"We feel really disappointed because we didn't sail well at all, but the other teams deserve it. It wasn't our regatta and we need to work harder for the next one to come back in to the game." said co-skipper Arnaud Psarofaghis.

"The crew did a good job the whole regatta but we were just off pace, made some bad decisions tactically, and that put us in a bad situation."

NZ Extreme Sailing Team follows the Swiss in fourth, having suffered a damaging blow to its scorecard in race 14.

"We were launched off the first race but we got pretty beaten up and ended up last, so it was tricky to bounce back from that. Just as we got some momentum going, we ran into the ground in the pre-start and weren't able to race so that was hard to build from," explained co-skipper Chris Steele.

"Fourth is the best result for the team so far this year, the learning curve this week has been awesome. I really feel like we've taken two steps forward, so hopefully we can take them to Cardiff," added Steele, whose team leapfrogs Land Rover BAR Academy on the overall scoreboard to take fifth.

Despite a strong start to the day for Land Rover BAR Academy, who posted a first and a second in the opening races, the young British syndicate finishes the Act in fifth, two points ahead of Alinghi and tied on points with the Kiwis.

Local wildcard entry Team Extreme, whose crew line-up featured German 49er sailor Linov Scheel, finishes at the bottom of the table.

The penultimate Act of the Flying Phantom Series was won by Red Bull Sailing Team, who has dominated the competition since the first stage in Madeira Islands. Kiwi sailors Olivia Mackay and Micah Wilkinson racked up an impressive 15 podium finishes, including five wins, from 17 races. Culture Foil, sailed by Eric Peron and Théo Constance, follow in second with ZEPHYR by Idreva, sailed by Charles Hainneville and Antoine Rucard, in third.

The international fleet of GC32s will reconvene in Cardiff in less than two weeks for the sixth Act of the eight-Act season, headlining the Cardiff Harbour Festival. The UK stage will also see the champion of the 2017 Flying Phantom Series decided. More information about the event can be found on the official website.

Day three in Hamburg sees Oman Air stay ahead while the rest of the pack reshuffle

Oman Air maintained its lead while Red Bull Sailing Team climbed from bottom of the table to second after seven nail-biting races on the penultimate day of Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 5, Hamburg, presented by Land Rover.

Four second places and three fifths were enough to keep Oman Air ahead by a comfortable margin while the rest of the fleet took part in a game of snakes and ladders, resulting in a leaderboard reshuffle.

But with only four points separating second and sixth place and a full day of racing ahead, including the final double-points race, there is everything still to play for.

"We have a nice little lead, and that's good to have going into the last day, but it's still not enough, you need so much more," said Oman Air skipper Phil Robertson.

"In this fleet it's so easy to lose that lead, eight points go in a heartbeat. We've just got to keep focussing on one race at a time and do what we do best."

Austrian-flagged Red Bull Sailing Team notched up two race wins and a second on a grey day on Hamburg's River Elbe, and finished tied on points with SAP Extreme Sailing Team.

"Today was good for us. It was really tricky but the boys did a great job, worked really hard and were fighting for every point," said skipper Roman Hagara.

"It's really tight in this fleet. We're just trying to catch up on the leaders, and then it's down to the double-points final race. If we are in reaching distance of the leading boat at that stage, then that's perfect."

Current season leader SAP Extreme Sailing Team makes up the podium. "It felt like it was really up and down for us today, it was very tough racing," said Adam Minoprio, who helmed the Danish squad to one win, and nearly bagged another until disaster struck. Thinking they had finished the race, but not realising they had one lap of the course left to sail, they watched their mammoth lead disintegrate, only managing a fourth-place finish.

"We still feel that we have good speed off the line and we're steering around the course well. We're sailing the boat with confidence. It feels as though the deck is stacked against us, but we're battling on and the guys are doing great. I feel like we're in contention," added Minoprio, who has helmed the team to two Act victories already this year.

A mixed bag for 2016 champion Alinghi, including two wins and two sixth places, sees it sit in fourth, just two points shy of Minoprio and his men.

A day of changing fortunes for NZ Extreme Sailing Team saw them drop from second after the penultimate race to finish the day in fifth. However co-skipper Chris Steele remains positive.

"The guys did a great job of battling away and getting the boat round the track. It was pretty tricky with the current, and we made a couple of mistakes at the start which made it hard, but we did bounce back with a race win and a couple of podium positions," said Steele.

"The points are incredibly tight and we're still on for tomorrow, we're still on the hunt," added Steele, whose team finished the day on equal points with Alinghi.

Despite claiming its first bullet since Act 2, Qingdao, Land Rover BAR Academy dropped from second to sixth overall, followed by wildcard entry Team Extreme, whose moment of glory came with a third-place finish in race six.

The Flying Phantoms completed four more races yesterday evening. The unstoppable Red Bull Sailing Team remains in the lead while Culture Foil climbed to second and ZEPHYR by Idreva knocked American-flagged Lupe Tortilla off the podium. Local German-flagged EVO Visian ICL, sailed by brothers Raphael and Elias Neuhann, sits in eighth overall.

Racing continues for the Flying Phantoms this evening and final results will be posted on the official website.

Extreme Sailing Series racing resumes tomorrow at 13:30 (UTC+2). Fans can watch the action from the free-entry Race Village located at the Hamburg HafenCity Cruise Centre, or watch online via the live Facebook or YouTube stream. Racing will be broadcast live on TV from 15:30 – 17:00 (UTC+2). More information can be found on the official website.

SilverHook World Speed Record attempt
from Key West to Cuba and back may face
choppy seas and 10-15 knot winds

 

Rough weather may add a lot of excitement in the running of SilverHook's speed record attempt across the Straits of Florida from Key West to Havana and back on Thursday morning, August 17.

EXTREME SAILING - ALEMANHA

 

Double win for Oman Air on testing day in Hamburg

In tough conditions on the River Elbe, Oman Air out-sailed its rivals to gain a six-point lead, with the rest of the fleet separated by a narrow two-point margin, after the first day of scoring racing at the Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 5, Hamburg, presented by Land Rover.

Light and patchy winds, combined with a strong tide in Hamburg, meant just two races were completed and three abandoned and Phil Robertson’s Oman Air, who won in Hamburg last season, were victorious in both.

“We managed to sneak in two wins, which is quite nice,” said Robertson, who comes to Hamburg fresh from wins in both Act 4 of the Extreme Sailing Series three weeks ago and in the World Match Racing Tour Match Cup Russia last week.

“We had a rough idea of what we wanted to do and we were able to execute it, which is quite hard with seven boats on a tight racecourse. Thankfully, everyone gave us what we wanted and away we went,” added Robertson, who took advantage of the shifty conditions to climb from the back of the pack to the front in race two.

The two younger squads, Land Rover BAR Academy and NZ Extreme Sailing Team, took a third and a fifth each to finish tied on points. The British squad occupy second place by virtue of finishing ahead of the Kiwis in the last race.

“It was hard to stay focussed because the breeze was so up and down and we had tide changing during the day and a lot of shipping,” said Land Rover BAR Academy skipper Rob Bunce.

“But I thought the lads did a good job of working out all the big game features, and it came good for us,” added Bunce.

EXTREME SAILING - ALEMANHA

 

Light winds and strong tide thwart Hamburg opener

Mother Nature refused to play ball on the opening day of Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 5, Hamburg, presented by Land Rover, resulting in no scoring races being completed. Conditions in the German venue are predicted to improve from tomorrow.

Light winds versus strong tide on the River Elbe meant the boats were unable to race, leaving the seven international teams the remaining three days to make their mark on the scoreboard.

Race Director John Craig explained the conditions he faced: "Today the maximum we saw was five or six knots of breeze but from a variety of different directions, coupled with one of the largest tides we've seen here in a long time. We had about five knots of current.

"We ran two demonstration races and then we tried one for real and we had to abandon it.

"Tomorrow is looking better, we should have a bit more wind to play with, but I am looking forward to Saturday and Sunday even more as the forecast is set to build," added Craig, who is optimistic for improved conditions for the rest of the event, with 10 – 15 knots of wind predicted on the final two days.

Due to tidal restrictions, the fleet of 11 Flying Phantoms, whose racecourse is based further along the iconic river, will be heading out this evening to run racing. Results can be found on the official website once racing has been completed.

GC32 Stadium Racing is scheduled to begin tomorrow at 13:30 (UTC+2) and can be followed via the live blog. Day three and four will be streamed live on the official Facebook and YouTube from 13:30 – 17:00 (UTC+2).

The free entry Race Village, located at the Hamburg HafenCity Cruise Terminal, will be open to public from 10:00 (UTC+2) offering front row seats for the racing along with plenty of on shore activity. For more information about the event visit the official website.
