Figaros crews take on the meteorological chess board

Figaros crews take on the meteorological chess board

Friday April 23 2010 Author: James Boyd Location: none selected

Inserting a waypoint gate into the Transat AG2R route, it was thought, would limit the tactical options for the doublehanded crews. Not so... For as an area of high pressure sets up over the Canary Islands, so off the Portugese coast the Figaros are scattered 200 mile laterally across the race course. Mitch Booth tells us of the Extreme 40's first World Championship. At the Rolex Farr 40 Worlds yesterday they didn’t manage to complete a race, while at the RC44 press conference in Valencia yesterday Russell Coutts said an announcement regarding the 34th America’s Cup is expected next month. Got something to sell? Why not pop up a classified.
