LV RACE 3 UPDATE – Luna Rossa won the start convincingly and put the pedal to the carbon fiber and never looked back. Artemis did much better making foil to foil jibes downwind but just could not match the transition and top end speeds of Luna Rossa.
Artemis got the conditions they wanted with great wind in the 16 to 20 knot wind range, as both boats were sailing fast. But Luna Rossa seems to be tacking better, jibing better and their straight line top end speeds were better.
At the end it was Luna Rossa by 1:18 minutes. Artemis must win in race 4 to stay in the game. Race 4 is scheduled to start at 1:15 this Saturday. Can Artemis stay in the game? Find out tomorrow!
