Extreme Sailing Series: Danish duo change tactics and eye up podium as Alinghi lead the charge heading into the final day
In a day that challenged even the most experienced Extreme 40 sailors at Act 2 of the Extreme Sailing Series™ in Singapore, it was hard for the teams to keep their cool under the blazing Singaporean sun.
The Swiss America’s Cup winning team Alinghi, however, didn’t break their stride starting the day as they finished it by winning races and head into tomorrow’s finale with a solid, but not untouchable, 27-point advantage at the top of the leaderboard. The form team of the day nevertheless was SAP Extreme Sailing Team, who put in their best performance since joining the Series in 2012 giving the Danish-flagged team a real shot at their first ever podium finish in tomorrow’s final showdown. But with 10 points for a race win and the final double-pointer still to come, the podium is wide open with any team mathematically capable of a podium position. Watch how the final races of the day played out here.
