What a finish! It went right down to the wire at the Extreme Sailing Series™ Act 3 in Istanbul. Going into the 43rd and final double points race three boats were in strong contention – Sweden’s Artemis Racing, Emirates Team New Zealand and the French team of Groupe Edmond de Rothschild. Dean Barker’s Emirates Team New Zealand trailed Terry Hutchinson’s Artemis Racing by just 5 points and Pierre Pennec’s team by 3 – just 3 places beween 3rd and 1st with double points up for grabs. The pressure was on and Barker kept his nerve to steer the Kiwis to a convincing race win. They then had an agonising wait only to see Artemis Racing climb up to 3rd place on the final gybe of the final downwind leg to win Act 3 by the smallest of margins – 1 point out of 307. Terry Hutchinson was ecstatic with his team’s first Act victory: “We knew around the last lap that we had one opportunity and we needed to pass one boat to win the regatta and we passed one boat. I jumped up to the first spreader when I heard Seb say that we had won the regatta!” explained Hutchinson. “I can’t say enough about how great the guys are on the job. I’m over the top about how we sailed and how we handled ourselves on the boat in really tough conditions. I hate losing with an absolute passion but these moments make it all worth it.” Pennec’s team finished the race in 7th to complete the podium here in Istanbul, but are compensated by retaining the overall lead in the 2011 Extreme Sailing Series championship – but also by just one point.
