From eXtreme Class:
Alicante got the 2008 eXtreme 40 Grand Prix off to a great beginning, as the fleet entertained thousands of visitors to the Volvo Ocean Race start — and the home boat, Alicante 2008-09, lifted the trophy for round one of the four-event series.
After four days of fantastically close battles on the water, in the end the eXtreme 40 Series | Alicante Grand Prix was decided on shore. As the six extreme 40s docked after racing yesterday, both Alicante 2008-09 and Delta Lloyd/Tommy Hilfiger were tied on equal points. But following a protest hearing yesterday evening Randy Smyth and crew on Delta Lloyd/ Tommy Hilfiger were disqualified from the final race, dropping them two points back into second overall.
Cheers from Alicante!
