44Cup Porto Montenegro, 10-14 Apr 2019, LIVE Feed

Day 4 44Cup Porto Montenegro - Team CEEREF claims golden wheels in Montenegro

The Bay of Tivat came good for the final day of the 44Cup Porto Montenegro with three races held and a most worthy winner in Igor Lah’s Team CEEREF. The Slovenian team led this first event of the 2019 44 Cup from the outset. Today neither they nor Vladimir Prosikhin’s Team Nika won a race, but showed impeccable consistency, both enjoying a trio of podium place results, elevating Team Nika from fourth to second overall. Video above published Apr 13, 2019.

Day 3 44Cup Porto Montenegro - Team Nika wins penultimate day

44Cup video published Apr 12, 2019: Dramatic cloud formations over the mountains surrounding the Bay of Tivat and an overcast sky suggested that 44Cup Porto Montenegro competitors would be in for another day of adrenalin-filled competition in winds in the high teens. In the event the wind started dropping almost the moment the timing for the sequence was announced.

Day 2 44Cup Porto Montenegro - Team Aqua top scorer

44Cup video above published Apr 11, 2019: While the sun was out and the rain held off, Porto Montenegro presented a challenging second day of 44Cup racing with conditions starting off in 10 knots and building to 20 by the close of play this afternoon. A light patch around the committee boat helped create nail-biting photo finishes in two of today's three races.

See also Day 1 video and Day 2 #Shotoftheday video: Spinnaker Burst. Porto Montenegro is the first event of the 2019 44Cup which pits the world's top businessmen and the best sailors in the industry compete in high-performance one-design 44-foot carbon racing yachts. The RC44 Championship Tour has been given a makeover and has been rechristened the 44Cup.

44Cup Porto Montenegro, April, 10 to 14 April 2019, hosted by the world-renowned superyacht marina Porto Montenegro situated in Tivat on the Bay of Kotor, virtually landlocked from the sea, with a setting that is spectacular, nestled between mountains and vast fjords to Venetian hamlets and untouched parks. Home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Montenegro is on the ascent as a tourist destination. The tiny Balkan nation is perched on the eastern Adriatic yet heavily influenced by its Mediterranean neighbors.

SailGP F50 Foiling - Cavitation Explained (video)

Explained: Cavitation

The foils of the SailGP F50 have been designed to delay cavitation for as long as possible - a phenomenon where the difference in pressure causes the water around the foil to boil, thereby reducing stability.

The SailGP fan-centric, inshore racing takes place in some of the most iconic harbors around the globe and culminates with a $1 million winner-takes-all match race. Rival national teams from Australia, China, France, Great Britain, Japan and the United States battle it out in identical supercharged F50 catamarans, engineered for intense racing at electrifying speeds exceeding 50 knots (nearly 60 mph).
