Scuttlebutt Video of the Week
September 28, 2012

Brazilian Mauricio Santa Cruz snatched the lead on day one of the 2012 Quantum Loop Solutions J/24 World Championship and never looked back. The team stacked up a 42-point advantage heading into Friday's final race and was able to stay ashore and let the others duke it out for the remaining podium spots among the 96-boat fleet.

Hosted by Rochester Yacht Club in Rochester, NY on September 13-21, no one expected such a runaway performance. In a fleet so large, at a venue so varied, how did the Bruschetta team achieve this remarkably consistent performance of seven top-ten tallies, a 13 and 19 in the ten-race series (including one discard)?

This week's video details how it was done, courtesy of H2OOverdriveHydrate.
