(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Musandam-Oman Sail made its presence felt on Portuguese waters for the second day in a row, winning Saturday's lone but all-important contest in the Cascais City Races at the MOD70 European Tour to retain its place on the top.Light winds cut down the scheduled itinerary of City Race series to just one race, but an enterprising Musandam-Oman Sail was quick to grab whatever little opportunity it came across to emerge victorious.The Omani boat needed a victory to take the overall top position and Sydney Gavignet's crew didn't disappoint.Musandam-Oman Sail finished three points clear of runner-up Spindrift racing. Groupe Edmond de Rothschild settled for No 3, followed by Foncia and Race for Water on fourth and fifth respectively.On Friday, Musandam-Oman Sail finished on top of the City Races leaderboard after winning the day's third and last race. The win had followed two third-place finishes.In Saturday's race, Gavignet's crew didn't have the best of starts to the day's contest, but as the race went on, Musandam-Oman Sail steadily began to push ahead of the others.At one stage, with the fleet sailing close to the Cascais-Estoril shoreline, Musandam-Oman Sail found extra wind and a nice angle, which helped the team firmly leave the rest of the pack behind.Meanwhile, as the breeze died away, three speed match races were held in quick succession.Groupe Edmond de Rothschild won the first two while the Yann Guichard-skippered Spindrift racing won the third match.Groupe Edmond de Rothschild, skippered by Sbastien Josse, took the top spot in speed racing, followed by runner-up Spindrift racing.Race for Water finished third, Musandam-Oman Sail finished fourth and Foncia finished at the bottom.Cascais City Race results [after 4 races]: 1 Musandam-Oman Sail (44 points), 2 Spindrift racing (41), 3 Groupe Edmond de Rothschild (40), 4 Foncia (38), 5 Race for Water (37).
