A tough day at the office
Live Ocean Racing Team
The Live Ocean Racing team go into the final day of racing lying 7th after day three of the ETF26 Series 2024 Mar Menor regatta.

In slightly lighter breeze, the fleet sailed five races again today in Spain, with Live Ocean Racing collecting one 3rd and four 8th placings not bouncing back in the way they’d hoped.

As the season kicks off it’s the teams who have raced and trained together that are setting the early standard.  Across the ETF26 class, comments that the standard of racing has really jumped to another level are pointing towards a 2024 season of highly competitive racing and close rivalries.

No change to the order of the top three today with Entreprises du Morbihan (FRA) still sitting at the top of the leaderboard, managing to retain an 11-point margin over Team Rockwool Racing 1 (DEN) – each collecting a couple of wins in today’s racing. Toroa Racing holds 3rd place.

The final day format includes an 8.5-mile coastal race to start, with another two short course races to follow, before the podium places for ETF26 Series Mar Menor Regatta are confirmed.
