The top seeds win it all
The sailing conditions faced by the teams were very difficult in spite of the everpresent sunshine: 25 knots and heavy seas: "we reached the limits in terms of possible weather".
In theses conditions, where luck doesn't really come into it, the standing order was respected, so it wil not come as a surprise that the three top seeds (Richard, Cian and Col) won all their races easily. -
