Talamone, November 30, 2013. Regatta report, results (after 13 races), photos and video
Last Saturday, three races were sailed in medium wind conditions, around 12 knots from the SE, with waves from SW.
The strategy was challenging due to the wind oscillations and the boathandling was difficult for the waves. As usual the RC, chaired by Alessandro Testa, did an excellent work managing the race course.
All the races were won by Pietro Fantoni and Michele Meotto, but all with minimal gaps and after tough battles with Granchi – Rossi, Prosperi – Schiaffino, Perdisa – Fontana and Pesci – Baldi.
It is interesting to note that many sailmakers were represented (Quantum San Diego, Diamond by Francesco Granchi, One, Ullman Trieste, Olimpic, North USA, Zaoli, Cruciani), some of them with new models, sign that currently in Italy there is no prevalence of a single brand.
Next races in Snipe Bay on December 14-15.
