Cayard's Update from San Diego

March 06, 2011 00:52 0 comments

Another good day today for Katusha and Artemis Racing. Katusha continues to lead the fleet here in San Diego with scores of 2, 6, 2 and 35 points. Artemis Racing had a 1, 4, 6 for a total of 46 for the series and 4th place. TeamAqua had the same points as we did for the day and remain 2 back at 37 and Oracle had 11 and remains in third with 42 points.

The big moment of the day for Katusha occurred in the second race when we rounded the last wind ward mark 10th and managed to gybe through the fleet to finish 6th. We have come back like that more than once this week and shaving points like that makes a big difference on the score card.

The racing is just fast and furious on the tight race track inside the Bay here. Lead changes and gains and losses of five places in three minutes are common in the fleet.

So, with three races left for tomorrow, it is still wide open. What we do take into tomorrow is a boat that is going better than ever and a crew who is sailing together well. So both Artemis Rcing and Katusha will put that on the race track and we will see where the ships fall at the end of the day.

Siriana

Nimbus 340 Commander

The Nimbus 340 Commander is available on Flexisail's Motor Cruiser membership and corporate membership scheme, a fantastic alternative to chartering. FlexiSail membership shares the time on a motor yacht between a small number of members (1 owner plus a maximum of 7 members). This gives each member the equivalent to 6.5 weeks or 46 days per year sailing, which is more than enough for most of us! If you have previously chartered do you remember the anxiety beforehand not knowing quite what to expect on arrival and therefore what you need to bring with you? With FlexiSail you are a member on the one boat – one you are totally comfortable and familiar with and which is fully kitted out with everything that you will need right down to a corkscrew! FlexiSail is in fact the closest you can get to owning a boat. You know exactly what to bring each time (just your wet weather gear, food and drink, and bedding if overnighting), and you are safe in the knowledge that the boat will be clean, welcoming and ready to enjoy when you arrive. Siriana has a low centre of gravity and large flybridge you can cruise in comfort, enjoying the power with complete control, knowing that every safety aspect has been considered. Siriana’s specification includes a bow and stern thruster, heating and demisting, active radar reflector and radar. She cruises comfortably at 16 knots and with a top speed of 22 knots ensures efficient and fast progress in most conditions. Coded for 8 category 2 (60 miles offshore), Siriana sleeps 6 in a large master double cabin, aft double cabin and a double saloon conversion Contact details info@flexisail.com +44(0) 1590 688008 http://www.flexisail.com
