44 Cup Palma Gremo na zmago TEAM NIKA #10 držim pesti ⛵️👍
Highlight of the week: 44Cup Cascais 2019 ⛵️🏆

Team Aqua has shone this week between big waves and small, gale force or sub-10 winds, and by consequence winning the 44Cup Cascais with a race to spare. This was something common for Team Aqua during her glory years of 2011-13, but a rare thing these days cause the recent level of competition in the high performance one-design monohull class.

Team Aqua was already holding the 44 Cup’s golden wheels by having been crowned RC44 World Champion in Marstrand in July, so a 4-3 yesterday was enough to seal the deal. However, Team Nika: Russian Sailing Team end up winning both yesterday’s first and last race, the latter by almost half a leg. Thus, Team Nika is just one point behind Team Aqua in the overall in the 44 Cup

Solid work from Tom Slingsby and Team Nika: Russian Sailing Team 👊 44Cup
“The boat felt quick and the team was working well together, I just think it was about not making mistakes. It was flat water so if you could get a clean lane and had your boat speed. All round, it just felt pretty good." - Chris Bake from Team Aqua during the 44Cup World Championship earlier this month. They went on to win the title followed closely by Vladimir Prosikhin's Team Nika: Russian Sailing Team.

Awesome sailing all around - we're proud to power your teams. Photo by Martinez Studio.
With just over 30 days till racing begins in Cowes Tom Slingsby is in Marstrand with Team Nika: Russian Sailing Team for the 44Cup World Championship 🇸🇪🔥

"I think if we sail well, Team Nika has a shot at winning here," says Slingsby, who is calling tactics this week.

"There are 9 extremely close, competitive teams, so firstly we need to race at the top of our ability. After that we will need to close out the event strongly. I think this type of close competitive racing does help myself on the F50. It’s all the same tactics but it just happens at a different pace. It’s all good."
Our boys have been busy! Congratulations Kinley Fowler, Ted Hackney and the crew of Convexity Racing for their M32 win at Charleston Race Week. And hats off to Tom Slingsby and the crew of Team Nika: Russian Sailing Team on a strong 2nd place finish at the 44Cup season opener in Montenegro. Next stop, San Francisco!
