As the locals celebrated shoreside with the tradition of books and roses to celebrate the ‘Diada de Sant Jordi’ or St George’s Day, out on the beautiful waters of Barcelona it was a building breeze through the day that saw the Swiss, Americans and French all training hard. For Alinghi Red Bull Racing, the technique improvements are coming thick and fast with the team beginning to build confidence in their radically-designed platform. It’s early days but this young, hard-charging Swiss team have proved over the previous two years that they are the fastest learners with an eagerness to hit peak performance. That will come in time, but BoatOne looked a different boat today, standing on its foils in just 7-8 knots of breeze and using all the leverage of the windward cant arm as the breeze topped out at around 14 knots late on.
