X.40-Catamaran - Extreme Sailig Series - Act 3 - Istanbul TUR - Alinghi produces the crash of the year
Major crash between 'Alinghi' and 'Team Extreme' in the fourth race of yesterday at Act 3 of the Extreme Sailing Series in Istanbul, the biggest crash on the circuit this year. In breezy conditions and gusts over 19 knots, it was a classic port/starboard incident, as 'Alinghi' tried to go behind 'Team Extreme' but didn't make and hit Roland Gaebler's boat hard putting a big hole in the port hull. Both teams had to abandon racing for the day. Here the video. 'Groupe Edmond de Rothschild' with Pierre Pennec FRA, team of the day, took the overall lead with a small margin ahead of 'Artemis Racing' (Terry Hutchinson USA) and 'Emirates Team New Zealand' mit Dean Barker NZL. The report and the rankings.
