[VIDEO] Day 1 and Day 2 Highlights from ACWS Naples

Day 1

It was stellar racing for the opening day in Naples, as the ACWS fleet enjoyed 15-20kts conditions, but also faced some adverse waves and trying water conditions. For ETNZ, it was consistency and smart sailing that paid off. Making a late push for third in the first race, and playing it safe to keep the lead on the second race, it was a characteristically accurate performance for the boys on ETNZ’s AC45. Other teams weren’t so lucky, especially Artemis Racing, who suffered a capsize round a turning mark.
