The first regatta of the 2008 Audi MedCup Circuit starts today, Monday 12th May. Heavy rain, thunderstorms and strong offshore, Northerly winds have been just part of what the 220 professional sailors from 27 countries present in Alicante have had to deal with whilst making last minute adjustments to the 16 TP52’s that make up the fleet which will contest the City of Alicante Trophy.

Practice race
Each regatta of the Audi MedCup Circuit follows the same format and opens with a practice race for the fleet over a typical windward-leeward inshore course. Monday’s practice race will likely be sailed in the continuing changeable Spring weather. Such unsettled breezes will place a premium on tactical sailing, making best use of differences in wind strength and direction. For further news and information about the Audi MedCup Circuit visit:
