#CowesWeek - The Irish crew on Christian Zugel’s MAT 1180 Tschüss have much to celebrate as they stand second overall in the IRC Zero fleet at Cowes Week.

Tschüss benefitted from the retirement of top contenders Gladiator and Tonnere in Wednesday’s wet and windy racing as they crossed the line after last year’s winner Lady Mariposa, the Ker 46 that looks set to defend her title.

Maurice O’Connell, Ross Monson, Johnny Mordant and Simon Johnson fully expect to slip down the table when the discard kicks in after the next race.

But with windy conditions in the Solent forecast to persist today, it’s still up in the air whether that final fleet race will take place.
