downwind spinakering, it was not going to be Maximus’ day as they played the game of catch up across the four mile course. Having fought to forth place behind Wild Oats, Alfa Romao and Morning Glory, they were unable to really improve throughout race. The weather conditions of light 8 knots breeze meant they were caught between ranges for boat - not powered up enough most of time and struggling for height upwind, then struggling for right sail combinations down wind. The disappointed crew finished fourth across the line.
Light forecasts for tomorrow’s racing will make it heavy going again for Maximus, but both the boat and crew are still in peak condition eager to ensure line honours this week, so watch this space!
