Velsheda’s close shave

The week got off to a dramatic start when Ranger shut out Velsheda during Race One of the J Class World Championships, leaving the 38.5 metre yacht with nowhere to go. Despite clipping a signal boat, she was able to continue, but could not catch up with her rivals and finished in sixth place. Velsheda’s fortunes improved with two second place finishes in Races Two and Three, however two further sixth place finishes meant she finished the week in sixth overall.
