Spain Sail Grand Prix
Cadiz Event Mark

United States claim first win of Season 4 with light-wind masterclass in Cádiz.

The United States celebrated their first event victory of Season 4 at the Spain Sail Grand Prix, defeating ROCKWOOL Denmark and Australia in the three-team winner-takes-all Final in Andalucía - Cádiz.

Despite not winning a single Fleet Race across the entire weekend - a weekend dominated by ROCKWOOL DEN who topped the leaderboard heading into the Final - Jimmy Spithill's team pulled off a masterclass of light-wind racing in the deciding showdown to clinch the win.

The Americans battled back from a pre-start penalty to execute a calm and clinical race, taking the lead from ROCKWOOL DEN on the second leg and crossing the finish line with a huge margin of victory - starting their celebrations while ROCKWOOL DEN and Australia were still battling it out for their eventual second and third-place finishes.
