The Audi MedCup Circuit consists of five regattas over the course of five months in four different countries. They are all sailed in Southern European waters, one in the Atlantic followed by four in the Mediterranean.
The Audi MedCup Circuit is acknowledged as the top regatta Circuit in the world today and attracts the very best designers, sailors and technicians.
This has inspired many owners and professional sailing teams to compete on the Circuit and to continue to participate through the seven year history of what has become the Audi MedCup tour.
Shirley meets up with the tour in Sardinia, Italy. Spending time with Ed Baird the new skipper of the defending champions Quantum Racing, and Maria Torrijo the principle race officer, both are under pressure to perform.
