Episode 4: Act 4, Porto - Race of the Day - Day 2

published 8 years ago by Extreme Sailing Series

Double Olympic gold medallist Hagara was chipping away at the leaderboard all day in Porto on day 2, steadily narrowing the gap between him and his French rivals on Groupe Edmond de Rothschild. Race 16 of the event was where Hagara started to make real in-roads leading his Austrian team to a race win, while the French could only muster an eighth. That set the tone for the final race of the day, and when Groupe Edmond de Rothschild careered into submerged rocks, forcing them to retire, that ultimately paved the way for Hagara to leapfrog them on the leaderboard and go into the penultimate day in second place. We went onboard with him and his team in race 16 and got his analysis after.
