Today the crew of Arctic Energy has had its second racing day of Giraglia Rolex Cup regatta! Team captain Valentin Zubkov is very satisfied with the clean start and notes that cooperation within the team is improving despite small faults, and maneuvers are becoming increasingly better.

“This allows us to get the upper hand in competitions and keep up with the rivals,” – the captain noted. 

The first race of the second day was short-distance for 1 mile. Initially the yachts started with high density, but the wind altered the course of the competition: although it was weak, it could not be neglected. The crew had to attend new tasks all the time. The danger was that in case of rising wind, the maneuvering lasted for a short time, which did not allow yachts to stretch out to the 1st sign. Such course of events was significantly risky, and in the end, the race was stopped, and after some time, it was cancelled.
