Small breeze & big tactics takes The Wave, Muscat into pole position ahead of final Cardiff showdown » Extreme Sailing Series:What a difference a day makes. If Saturday’s Extreme 40 racing on Cardiff Bay was all about power, Sunday was about tactics and finesse, with light breeze dancing across the bay, at Act 5 of the Extreme Sailing Series™ presented by Land Rover. Just five points scoring races were added to the tally – but five all important leaderboard changing races - with the pressure piling on the teams to lay down a strong performance ahead of Monday's final day. One team with huge pressure on their shoulders in Cardiff is The Wave, Muscat, who need an Act win here to keep in touch with the top of the overall Series leaderboard and skipper Leigh McMillan more than rose to the challenge, adding 33 points to their score to overhaul Alinghi, and lead the pack for the first time, heading into today's racing.
