We won! Another solid day yesterday concluding the Extreme 40 Sailing Series Act 3 with a 1,2, 4 plus a not-so-conventional finish. Despite the unusual end to the day, we still managed to finish on top of the leaderboard by 10 points over fellow Swiss sailors on RealTeam in second and Emirates Team NZL in third. This win also climbed us back on top of the overall series' leaderboard.

"Well, today was tricky!" the most quoted phrase on the dock after racing today. The breezy forecast didn't materialise which made for extremely challenging conditions on the water for this afternoon's racing. Despite sailing what didn't feel like a great day, we managed to hang on to most of our lead at the top of the board with a bit of shuffling going on right behind us heading into the last day of racing tomorrow.
