The SAP team led the Extreme Sailing Series that was held in San Diego and concluded last weekend. If the performance of the team is looked at, they had won eight out of the thirteen races that has been held in the two days of the series when it started the San Diego chapter.
The bay is known for the Santa Ana winds which the team had heard about but had not experienced. The third day the winds were stated to show up which usually loses speed when they reach the waters. The winds hence played a big role in the team’s performance and that of others. The SAP catamaran which is steered by Minoprio, had dominated the race in the past two days when the sea breeze had kept up a speed that varied from twelve to seventeen knots. There were gusts that topped 20 knots as well for the boats participating in the Extreme Sailing event. The strongest winds helped the catamarans that rise to 32 feet in length, to be able to use their foiling design and reach high speed around 30 knots.
However the SAP catamaran along with others struggled when the conditions remained light and shifty as of Thursday. SAP team had a commanding position on the leaderboard and also had a lead over the Alinghi team. Sunday the final races were held that concluded the San Diego chapter. It is said that the strong winds that come down the mountains and the passes usually die down when they hit the waters and face the ocean breeze. SAP’s team was set to face a challenging situation in that case. However the series would now be moving on to the finale event of the year in Mexico, the venue for the next chapter being Cabo San Lucas.
