Hamble leads opening round robins

At Chubb Insurance International Team Racing in Dublin

Saturday May 10th 2003, Author: James Boyd, Location: United Kingdom
After the opening round robin series of the Chubb Insurance International Team Racing Challenge on Dublin Bay today (Saturday), Britain's Hamble River Sailing Club has taken a narrow overnight lead from American arch-rivals Storm Trisail SC from Newport, Rhode Island.

In fresh westerly winds and warm sunshine, the opening round saw a wide spilt in performance across all eight teams. The home team East Coast Sigmas scored well, losing just three races in the day though all three helms have the advantage of racing their own boats in the series.

A second Round Robin contest tomorrow will decide the series that is the annual return match of the Patriots Cup event that takes place between the transatlantic teams in Newport.
