Grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory

Grabbing defeat from the jaws of victory

Thursday March 18 2010 Author: James Boyd Location: none selected

Another rip-roaring race between TeamOrigin and Artemis, which the Brits dominated this morning in the second elimination round of the Louis Vuitton Trophy Auckland – but once again after some inspired sailing TeamOrigin lost the lead and in this sudden death match, the critical point and have now been eliminated from the competition. Darren Bundock today talks of his wide-reaching plans including ramping up the F16 catamaran class. But the big news is Groupama 3, which, barring catastrophe, is on track to set a new Jules Verne Trophy record time for sailing non-stop around the world, when she finishes on Saturday.
