The British boat Panther AMG is leading the Mumm 30 world championship after the first two race

A total of 45 boats from 12 different countries are competing in the Mumm 30 world championship at Cagliari on the south coast of Sardinia.

The first day’s racing, which took place in bright sunshine and a moderate breeze yesterday (3 October), was so close that the race committee on the finish boat had their work cut finishing the second race when seven boats crossed the line together.

After two races, Simon Sarsfield’s Panther AMG is leading the scoreboard with helmsman Mike Budd competing in his first ever Mumm 30 event. Lying in second place the Italian Alina.
