Musandam-Oman Sail takes the lead, for now

Musandam-Oman Sail has taken the lead – a slight 1.2 mile advantage –  among a tight fleet of MOD70's through the waters of northern Spain en route to the finish of let two in the 2012 European Tour. Only eight miles separate all competitors, and skipper Brian Thompson concedes, "We are not punching the air because you have to be in the lead at the finish so we are just concentrating on going fast and not making any mistakes but it feels good and is a pay off for all our hard work so far… It shows you how close the MOD70 racing is and we have seen on this leg with Race for Water how a small problem can set you back though they are back in sight now. We are in a good position but when things are this close, it’s important we stay focussed.”
