Audi A1 powered by ALL4ONE on day 3 of Barcelona Trophy, lots of action!


Barcelona, Spain - 2010-07-23

The Audi MedCup teams left the dock a bit later today, as they were waiting for the typical sea breeze from Barcelona (the “Garbi”) to build. The third competition day started at 14h30 with the first start, in a wind between 12 and 15 knots from the South-South-West.
Audi A1 powered by ALL4ONE finished 4th in the first race. Then the team took the 8th place in the second one. Last but not least, the French-German crew finished 6th in the third and last race of the day.

They have said:
Gilles Favennec, Foredeck grinder: “It’s been quite a long day. We have sailed the two first races with the wind that was forecasted and that came after the clouds. Then we started the third and last race at the end of the day with a wind about 16 to 17 knots. I think we mainly missed a bit of success, as we are often close to doing better. Results are getting better compared to the first racing day. But all the teams are also improving compared to the first events, and the smallest mistake costs us a lot. We are close to do well, but we need the little thing that will make us stay in the front of the fleet, and I’m confident that it will come back.”

Paolo Bassani, Boat Captain and Floater: “It was a difficult day, because the breeze was very shifty, so it was not easy to choose which way to go. The boats in the fleet were very close, so we could easily lose or gain two or three positions in one tack. We ended up with one good race and two averages, so we’re still a little bit behind in the general ranking. Tomorrow we’ll do better and at least come back in the first six boats. The level of the fleet is getting higher and higher, and little mistakes cost a lot.”
