For Doug DeVos’ American flagged team which is lead by America’s Cup winner Ed Baird it was their second Barclays 52 SUPER SERIES event win in a row, adding to their victory in Porto Cervo, Sardinia.
They denied Rán Racing their crack at the Copa del Rey title on the start line of the last race. Quantum Racing set themselves into Rán’s lee bow in the final seconds, bouncing them out to the less favoured side of the course. Zennström’s team rounded the top mark in sixth while Eduardo de Souza Ramos’ Brazilian crew on Phoenix streaked away to win ahead of Azzurra.
