In a fleet as close as the 44Cup’s it is rare for one team to dominate. However, perhaps because of the 17 month absence caused by the pandemic, yesterday at the 44Cup Portorož there was one stand-out performer, Team Nika. Today it was the turn of RC44 legend Chris Bake, Kiwi tactician Cameron Appleton and Team Aqua to shine brilliantly. Team Aqua seemed unable to put a foot wrong winning all three races. Like Team Nika on day one, Team Aqua ended the day with a four point lead, ahead of Hugues Lepic’s Team Aleph, still second with the most consistent scoreline across the fleet, but with three teams within three points of them.
