And That's A Wrap
That's a wrap for the 2012 season! Team GAC Pindar finished 5th overall in the 2012 Extreme Sailing Series after the eight Acts throughout the year. Racing wrapped up yesterday and the boats were loaded in containers today. The doors were locked shut moments ago.
Hot Temps : Hot Racing
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
It was exciting and close racing all around the track today in the eight races sailed at Act 8 of the Extreme Sailing Series here in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. With thermometers in town reading 37 degrees Celsius at 10 am as we headed for the boat, we knew we were in for a hot day, but the wind came in and provided fantastic breeze for eight races where we were finally able to move up the leader board by one place to seventh.
More Ups Than Downs Today In Rio
It was again another up and down day, but for us on Team GAC Pindar, we had a lot more ups than yesterday thankfully at Act 8 of the Extreme Sailing Series. With eight races sailed we came home with a 1, 2, 3, 4 in four of them. Although it didn't raise us up the leader board overall, we did close the gap a little on points heading into the final two days of racing.
Act 8 Extreme 40's - Day 1
It was a bit of a day of snakes and ladders as skipper Andrew Walsh called it after the second race of today in Act 8, the final act of the Extreme Sailing Series here in Rio. Unfortunately for Team GAC Pindar, we found more snakes than ladders today. After six races, we are towards the bottom of the results table, but have our eyes set on climbing back up over the next three days of racing.
4th Overall At Act 7, Extreme Sailing Series
It was a tough day on the water today, the final day of racing at Act 7 of the Extreme Sailing Series here in Nice, France. However, Team GAC Pindar held onto their fourth place overall rank in the regatta despite a few challenging races.
Lying In 4th Going Into The Final Day Tomorrow
It was a good day for Team GAC Pindar today, the penultimate day of racing, at Act 7 of the Extreme Sailing Series. Nine races were completed with Team GAC Pindar winning three of them, moving us up to 4th place overall, only four points off the podium.
