Opening day of the GC32 Oman Cup looked like it might be marginal. However in the end, four out of five of the scheduled races were sailed just north of the Al Mouj marina with a challenging set of wind conditions at times.
Undisputed winner on Day Two was Zoulou, which, with French ace Gurvan Bontemps standing in on the helm for owner-driver Erik Maris, scored two bullets and three seconds, which was immensely consistent given the sea state and gusty conditions.
Day Three was the turn of Oman Air to hit the front at the GC32 Oman Cup. The local heroes led by Adam Minoprio are ten points adrift of the formidable Swiss with potentially five races still to sail and with the fleet down to five following Argo’s untimely breakage.
