With some decent breeze finally deciding to turn up in, we started the day with a bang - first place in the first race. As the fog and rain rolled in, and the breeze evaporated, after seven races, we rounded out the day finishing third in the last race. We ended the day in third place - tied for points with Red Bull, in second - on the Event Leaderboard. Sunshine is finally on the cards for tomorrow, but light breeze once again. Nevertheless, we'll take what we've learned so far from this trickiest of courses, and hopefully clock in a solid result for Act 5, and consolidate our lead on the Series Leaderboard. #KeepPushing Images: Tristan Stedman
During Act 5, SAP Extreme Sailing Team will be fine-tuning their new high-tech onboard systems. With technical support from BRAVO Systems, new sensors on the boat will now gather a wider range of data, including wind speed and angle, foil and rudder rake, foiling height, and mast rotation. Measurements will be visible to the sailors in real-time via four super-bright Garmin GNX 120 dispays. Post-racing, gathered data will complement SAP Analytics, and translate into a solid training tool which will help develop both strategic decision making, and boat setup and trim.

A twilight flyby by SAP Extreme Sailing Team past the iconic Elbphilharmonie Hamburg in Germany - home turf of SAP - made for a special photograph, taken by Tristan Stedman. Hope you enjoy. Thanks to Adam Minoprio, Rasmus Køstner, Pierluigi de Felice, Mads Emil Stephensen Lübeck, Richard Mason, and Jes Gram-Hansen for making it possible.
So happy with my 2nd place at Challenge Finland. My 4:13:50" is pretty fast, felt good all day. Just happy that every race is getting stronger! Huge congrats to my Team mate from Siri Lindley (Sirius Athletes) Kaisa Sali,so happy for her to win infront of home crowd, it's just so extra special! My idea to bike a bit less hard to see if I would then run better then normally (so kind of run like I used to :-) worked. Just so stoked with my 1.21" for the Half Marathon and felt like I could have gone on a bit longer :-)!!!! Bring on Challenge Almere-Amsterdam where I hope to feel like Kaisa is feeling today ☺️😍😂 #homeadvantage

The lack of breeze on the River Elbe today slowed down the #GC32, but it didn't slow down the onboard action. Although the first day of Extreme Sailing Series Act 5 saw no scoring races, due to light and unpredictable wind conditions, the teams squeezed all they could out of their time on the water. SAP Extreme Sailing Team used the 'exhibition racing' as critical preparation ahead of another day of light conditions tomorrow. Images: Tristan Stedman
Big congratulations to the crew of SAP Extreme Sailing Team who finished second overall in Extreme Sailing Series Act 5 in Hamburg, Germany. Today the sun came out, and the breeze picked up, and a huge crowd of spectators at HafenCity got what they came for. After six races today, despite the fact the team clocked up three race wins, they missed first place by a mere three points. Congratulations to Oman Air with their well deserved Act win. We're still tied for points at the top of the series leaderboard, and will push harder than ever during Act 6 in Cardiff, in a few weeks time. Thanks to everyone who came and supported us in Hamburg, to our guests who joined us onboard, and of course to our sponsors and partners; SAP, Sail Racing International, adidas Sailing, Alpha Ropes, Rudy Project.
The calm before the storm, quite the opposite from last week, hot humid conditions at @XterraDR. Can't beat it though, looking forward to racing in such a unique place, very happy to be starting at 615 EST. #xterraDR #CasaBonitaDR #PaulMitchell #SRMpower #ProCyclingCOS #FirstEndurance #RudyProject #EffettoMariposa #EnduroBites #CoRunCo #DurataElite
Adam Minoprio is the man tasked with leading the team into battle today. Accoring to Adam, the racecourse on the River Elbe will be difficult to set, and even more challenging to sail. With light wind and strong current on the cards, start timing will be trickier than ever, but critical as always. Strategy will weigh heavily, as boats who manage to sail the course cleanly, and to minimise manoeuvres will likely be the fastest around the course. Images: Tristan Stedman
During the first race on day 2 of Extreme Sailing Series in Hamburg, SAP Extreme Sailing Team ran aground on an unmarked obstacle within the race course. This resulted in a DNF, and damage to the starboard foil, and bearing. We recovered well and placed second in the last race of the day. ‘Man of the day’ award went to Richard Mason who can now tick swimming in the River Elbe off his bucket list. Renato Conde pushed hard overnight to repair the damage, and the boat is race-ready again. With plenty more breeze on the cards today, the action is sure to kick up a notch, and make good viewing from HafenCity, or at www.extremesailingseries.com/live. Racing will begin at 1345 local time.
