Ladies take the Victory in Auckland, NZ.

SCA, the all Ladies Sailing Team, have won the In-Port Sailing Race in Auckland. CONGRATULATIONS!
This was already their 2nd win in an In-Port Race, the most of all Teams.

SCA wins Auckland In-Port Race
SCA has a good start, but Maphre as well, only SCA choose a better route in the 1st leg, such they were leading the fleet at the first turning mark. From there it was a run race for SCA as none of the competition came close enough for a passage. Only Team Brunel, came close to them under the bridge, but were never a real threat for the 2nd Victory of SCA in an In-Port race.

Lets  hope this will give some boost to the ladies that helps to improve on the results in the next Legs as well.

Big Q. now is: When will Leg 5, from Auckland to Itajai, actually start?

The original start date, 15th March, is postponed because of the cat. 5 Cylone PAM that has devastated the Vanuatu islands and now on its way to close east of Auckland. The present thoughts are that a start could be possible between earliest Tuesday evening till Wednesday midday , local time.

Keep an eye on my blog, as I will try to stay alert to warn you, or check out the VOR website.
