Video: TP 52s in Alicante

Footage from the water and the air of Friday's coastal race
This video from the first coastal race (where Russell Coutts' Artemis led, but missed a mark in the second half of the race) at the Breitling MedCup Trofeo Alicante, shows many of the new boats. In this first clip taken from the water we see the race start. (Clip length 14MB) In this second clip taken from a helicopter you see the boats sailing downwind at speed and their leeward mark roundings . NB: This video is formatted to play in Windows Media Player and is LARGE in size - therefore only suitable for those with broadband connections. Mac users can now view WMV files by downloading a suitable add on to Quicktime - we for example use Flip4Mac which works a treat. The only noticable difference is that while the clip will play out while downloading on a PC in Internet Explorer, on a Mac it must download first.
