The teams which topped key racing metrics in Cádiz, including number of maneuvers, percentage fly time and ride height, have been revealed.
Data provided by the 10-strong F50 fleet across Cádiz’s five fleet races shows that New Zealand topped the highest number of metrics, including distance sailed, maneuvers, fly time and ride height.
The Kiwis sailed the shortest distance of the whole fleet, a total of 23,142m compared to Canada, which sailed the furthest - 25,742m.
New Zealand also performed the fewest maneuvers - just 26, compared to Canada and Australia, which came bottom of the metric, with 33 maneuvers apiece.
When it came to fly time, New Zealand was top again with the Kiwis up on the foils for 75% of fleet racing, just ahead of ROCKWOOL DEN’s 74.3%. Eventual event winner the United States picked up 65%, while France came bottom of the metric with 59% - just below Australia and Germany’s 59.7%.
Finally, Peter Burling’s crew had the highest ride height - 838.9mm, while ROCKWOOL DEN again came second with 816.3mm. From there, there was a big drop off to the rest of the fleet, with Switzerland’s ride height of 684.8mm coming third, despite racing with new flight controller Francois Morvan.
