The European Double Mixed Offshore Championship-Alilauro Trophy, the reference event of the Marina Militare Nastro Rosa Tour, organized by Difesa Servizi SpA, Marina Militare and SSI Events under the aegis of EUROSAF, went live this morning with the start of the final stage.

To anticipate the opponents on the starting line positioned by the Reale Yacht Club Canottieri Savoia, partner of the event, was the Beneteau Figaro 3 of the Marina Militare (Pendibene-Valsecchi) who, sprinted on the pin on time, tacked on the first favorable wind shift and lapped the upwind mark followed by Team Spain (Altadill-Nijjar) and the Swedish Team Mange Olsson Memorial Foundation (Stromberg-Floser).

A start as real protagonists for the Marina Militare crew who, delayed by a problem with the electronics on board, had reached the starting theater at the last useful moment, and summarized by Andrea Pendibene who had declared: "The Marina Militare trains us to never give up and to make a difference in difficulties".

After a few hours of racing, on the occasion of the first passage of Capri, the crew of the Marina Militare defended the lead, pursued by the Swedes and by Team ENIT (Bona-Zorzi), winners of the first two stages.

The ten Beneteau Figaro 3, almost compact, will now sail towards Palmarola, Punta Stendardo (Gaeta, Base Nautica Flavio Gioia), Ischia, Capri, Ventotene, Procida and Capri before sailing towards the finish line in Naples.

Precisely in the Neapolitan capital, the award ceremony will take place on the afternoon of 7 September at the base of the Marina Militare Headquarters based in Via Ammiraglio Acton, which will see the winning crew receive the Alilauro Trophy.

Meanwhile the Diam 24 and kite foil regattas continued in Naples. Among the trimarans, the leader of the general classification is now Team Oman, winner of the Genoa and Gaeta events and a strong start also in Campania, which holds up to Team France, three points behind, and Intesa San Paolo-CC Aniene, which he must make up nine lengths over the three remaining days. Among the riders, the very young Irene Tari won the Neapolitan stage, followed by Gaia Falco and Alessandro Giannini. Dante Romeo Marrero, who took part in the entire event, dominated the calculation of the fractions disputed in the Tyrrhenian Sea.

The Navy Nastro Rosa Tour and the Italian Army united against Covid.

As happened in Genoa, Civitavecchia and Gaeta, the anti-Covid monitoring carried out by the medical unit of the Esercito Italiano (Lieutenant Valentina Carella and Caporal Maggiore Capo Antonella Pitanza) continued also in Naples: from 25 August to today, over five hundred tests have been carried out and each of the participants in the event, whether they are professionals or athletes, was tested every 48 hours.
