We took our second victory this year in Aktia Pentala Race. The competition was tough with 9 boats in class ORC 3. The race merely lacked beating, long distances were sailed reaching. On the second reach half way from Örskär to Knaperskär we succeeded in lifting the spinnaker as the wind slightly shifted to west and weakened, by this we gained at least one minute. Only Ebnegea succeeded in doing the same for a short while. This was important, as the margin to FinnFun constantly was growing wery close to the handicap.
The wind was perfect for us with gusts up to the maximum for our Genua 1.
In corrected time we won with a margin of 2 minutes. Tom Finell with FinnFun was second and Phoenix third. We were also the over all winner.
We are now the leader in the ranking.
