Eight teams competed. Pietro Fantoni and Lorenzo Baldi, had an easier time in the first race than in the second, where they were led for a long time by Fabio and Daniela Rochelli. Fabio and Daniela eventually were unable to contain the comeback of the Friulan-Tuscan team.

Good speed was also seen from Ciufo, Pesci and especially Gemini. The sailors were happy to see Luigi Berti with his “old crew” Krantz Fontana return to racing after a long absence.

After a magnificent christening with “Ferrari” excellent sparkling wine offered by the owners, the new DBR1 of Alberto and Anna Maria de Paoli was launched. They look forward to fine-tuning their new Snipe.

The next regatta at Snipe Bay is March 2-3. 

 

 

 

 

Results – 2 manche (round)

Temperature primaverili, sole e un vento tra i 5 e i 10 nodi hanno caratterizzato le due prove svoltesi a Talamone domenica 17 febbraio scorso. Il posizionamento del campo vicino a terra ha reso le regate difficili da interpretare e ricche di colpi di scena.
Otto equipaggi al via e dominio di Pietro Fantoni – Lorenzo Baldi, più agevole nella prima prova che nella seconda, a lungo condotta da Fabio e Daniela Rochelli che alla fine non sono riusciti comunque a contenere la rimonta dell’inedita coppia friulan – toscana. Ottimi spunti anche da Ciufo, Pesci e soprattutto da Gemini. Da registrare il buon rientro alle regate dopo un lungo periodo di assenza di Luigi Berti con a prua lo storico prodiere Krantz Fontana. Dopo un sontuoso varo con brindisi a base di ottimo spumante “Ferrari” offerto dagli armatori è sceso in acqua anche il nuovissimo DBR1 di Alberto e Anna Maria De Paoli, ancora bisogno di messa a punto.
L’appuntamento con Snipe Bay è per il 2-3 di marzo.
