SoftBank Team Japan claims first podium finish

The first freshwater event in the history of the America’s Cup World Series has been hailed as a huge success that showcased the sport at its finest.

Swedish team Artemis Racing took the overall first place in Chicago, but it was SoftBank Team Japan that stole the headlines, winning two of the four races and claiming their first overall podium finish.

Dean Barker and his team got off to a great start, winning all four of the practice races that they started on Friday June 10. And when racing was abandoned on Saturday due to light and unstable winds, this result was scored as an official race.

SoftBank Team Japan carried this form into the second day of racing, winning Race 4 to take third place overall for the America’s Cup World Series Chicago with a grand total of 56 points.
