On home waters, British team Basilica won the iShares Cup at Skandia Cowes Week (3-5 August) with a race to spare, bringing their tally to three wins in the overall iShares Cup Extreme 40 Sailing Series.

The heavy-hitting team skippered by Robert Greenhalgh and crewed by Peter Greenhalgh, James Grant and Justin Slattery finished ahead of BT helmed by Darren Bundock and skippered by Nick Moloney who not only took second at this penultimate event but moved into third place in the iShares Cup overall series just behind Carolijn Brouwer’s Holmatro.

“A great result for us today and we’re thrilled to have won in our own backyard with a race to spare even with mixed results on the final day,” Peter Greenhalgh, trimmer on Basilica explained.
