Nice FRA to Amsterdam NED
It all came down to the last race. We won the race and the event, Act 7 of the Extreme Sailing Series!! It was an incredibly tricky regatta, one of the more lower points-scored events in a while but we are more than happy to have come out on top in the end and to maintain the top spot on the overall leaderboard going into the finals in Sydney in December.

Today was a great day for team Alinghi here in Nice on the penultimate day of racing. We sailed 7 races and finished all but the last race in the top 4, allowing us to climb to the top of the leaderboard. The points are still close overall, so there is still all to race for tomorrow.

A much better day was had here in Nice on Alinghi as we picked up the most points in the fleet and moved up the leaderboard to 4th, 9 points out of first. The racing again was light and tricky, but a little more breeze than yesterday.
