But the only key cast member visibly absent from the denouement, the scripted finale of the 52 Super Series’s first of four regattas this season, was the Garbi. The usually reliable sea-breeze refused to appear.
After two and half hours of waiting, on edge waiting for the light zephyrs to build to a racing breeze, the race committee had no alternative but to cancel the final race, leaving Quantum Racing as the regatta winners and the leaders of the 52 Super Series as it moves next month to Costa Smeralda for the Audi Sardinia Cup.
With five new crew in their line up, and a couple of modest starts on Day 1 – by the admission of winning skipper-helm Ed Baird – Quantum Racing started Barcelona with obvious room to improve, but finished Saturday with a flourish, trumping the fleet with a pair of aces. In fact it is only that second win on Saturday which separates them from Audi Azzurra Sailing Team who showed good all-round speed on their new Botin Partners design which is a similar development to Quantum Racing.
