TeamOrigin drama

Monday May 24 2010 Author: James Boyd Location: none selected

Ben Ainslie and the lads at TeamOrigin will be hoping it is third time lucky today at the Louis Vuitton Trophy in La Maddalena, after a spinnaker entanglement lost them Saturday’s race against the Bertrand Pace-steered Aleph and, unbelievably, they fouled a lobster pot during the pre-start of Sunday’s match against Artemis. Last week’s two offshore races have both come to dramatic climaxes with the Normandy Channel Race leaders coming home 20 minutes apart yesterday and this morning, just 1 minute 15 seconds separating the two 50ft trimarans on the outbound leg of the Vendee-St Petersburg.
