Dubai RC 44 Cup

Report from Team Aqua:
Well, today wasn't the best of days for us. Aqua ended the day at 2-3. We had some contact with Sea Dubai in our last match and were penalized a point for the incident. So we are sitting in fifth with one point. The good news is that the fleet is very even and there is a four way tie for first, all at 3-2. Not one boat is out of reach.
The racing was extremely tight and everyone is showing good pace in the light breeze. The emphasis is now on the starts. We finished the first round robin today and tomorrow we will complete the second. Conditions were light, with the breeze staying in the 5-8kt range all day. We are ready to go for tomorrow. All the guys are eager to get another shot at the competition. The Team is looking forward to it. Will let you know how it goes... - Matt Cassidy Team Aqua
