Victory team Australia ended the second phase of the new international sailing League SailGP, in the course of two days held in the Bay of San Francisco.
As you know, the Australians won the first stage in February in Sydney.
Recall that after the first day leader was the Japanese team who won on Saturday all three races. On Sunday, the Japanese (the name, to put it mildly, conditional, since four of the six members of the crew, led by skipper Nathan Outteridge – Australians) were not as successful in the two prior races, they took 2-nd and 4-th place. But it was more than enough in order to reach the final from the first place.
Another participant of the final was team Australia (3rd and 1st place in Sunday’s preliminary races).
Japan and Australia met in the final and three months ago in Sydney. Beat the Australians. Now the same thing happened. Although, of course, we must note that in the decisive race “Japanese” failed electronics: for example, they could not use the display. But who is to blame?
The result of the second stage is as follows:
1. Australia – 47 points
2. Japan – 46
3. United Kingdom – 43
4. USA – 37
5. France – 28
6. China – 27
And here are the results for the two rounds of:
1. Australia – 93 points
2. Japan – 91
3. United Kingdom – 79
4. US – 68
5. France – 61
6. China – 60
Next, the third stage SailGP will take place on 21-22 June in new York.
