Snipe Worlds 2015 Talamone... Best Of...

How did you prepare for the Worlds? Did you train a lot and where? Wich type of preparation did you do? Did you sail and train with other brazilian teams?

I had a very intensive preparation for the last two Worlds before Talamone (Rungsted and Rio). For Talamone I had less preparation, just 02 major events in Brasil and some local regatas in Salvador, my home town.

In the last month before the Worlds I sailed once a week. I'm a Stand Up paddler since 2013 and also compete in this sport.

I'm sure this also helped me stay physically strong.

How many years have you sailed the Snipe? How long have you sailed with Gustavo? Did you sail with Gustavo or also with other crews?

Snipe since 2008 and with Gustavo since january 2015. This year only with Gustavo, but with many other crews since I began in Snipe Class.

Did you sail only Snipe or also others boats?

Before 2008 I sailed Optimist, Europe Class and Laser, but now only Snipe.

In the morning, competitors were surprised to find the cutting-edge and brand-new Frigate "Virginio Fasan" of the Italian Navy in Snipe Bay. The 144 meter long and 6700 ton displacement frigate dropped anchor in front of the Circolo della Vela Talamone at 7 a.m. to pay tribute to the 83 crews from 18 nations.

Urban-Seixas (BRA) win Race 5. Gale steals the show in Race 6, abandoned

Heavy duty sailing and good seamanship were called for on day 3 of racing in Talamone Tuscany @ the Snipe World Championship organized by the Circolo della Vela Talamone.

Race 5 was completed with Mario Calazans (Maru Urban)-Daniel Seixas (BRA) crossing the finish line in 1st position. For safety reasons, race 6 was abandoned when a gale swept through Snipe Bay with winds on the race course reaching 26-30 knots.

A good call by the Race Committee chaired by Fabio Barasso who could also count on the on-the-water safety team of the Circolo della Vela Talamone to ensure all 83 crews from 18 nations could return safely to shore.

Spaniards Soto Valero-Belmonte Cuenca dismasted and were towed into port.

After five races with no discard, Luis Soubie – Diego Lipszyc from Argentina are still in the lead with 32 points (4-6-8-3-11). Augie Diaz - Kathleen Tocke (USA) are second at 43 points (12-5-7-15-4). Third place on the provisional scoreboard for Japanese Yuichi Oi-Noriaki Sakai at 60 points (18-29-9-2-2).

Talamone, September 22, 2015. Day 2 of racing in Talamone Tuscany @ the Snipe World Championship organized by the Circolo della Vela Talamone with another two races completed.

After four races, Soubie-Lipszyc from Argentina are in the lead with 21 points (4-6-8-3) followed in second place by the two-time World Champion Augie Diaz racing with Kathleen Tocke at 39 points (12-5-7-15). Third, Belgian Hens racing with Spaniard Campos at 46 points (9-2-25-10).

Today’s races were won by Jordi Triay Pons-Lluis Mas Barceló (ESP) in Race 3 and by 18 and 19 year old Felipe Santa Rita-Luis Felipe Meirelles (BRA), who finished 2nd overall in last week’s Junior Snipe World Championship. 

Once again Snipe Bay in Talamone, Tuscany delivered great racing conditions. After yesterday’s strong winds, the 83 crews from 18 nations cut the starting line with flat seas, sunny skies and a 9-12 knot westerly breeze. An extremely tactical race day, with wind direction fluctuations that were continuously interpreted to adapt the race course in the best of ways by the President of the Race Committee Fabio Barasso and coordinated by the Club Velico Talamone’s Vice-President Alessandro Testa.
