44Cup Scarlino World Championship: The last event of Yacht Club Isole di Toscana season

by Yacht Club Isole di Toscana 11 Oct 06:45 BST

To Chris Bake’s Aqua the 44Cup Scarlino World Championship, with a photo-finish for the last event of Yacht Club Isole di Toscana season: nine boats competing, representing 6 nations.

The curtain falls on the fourth event of the 44 Cup, with the assignment of the World Championship.

Silver medal, with only one point behind, goes to Charisma by Nico Poons.

On the lowest step of the podium Artemis Racing of the Swedish Tornqvist.

A week of great sailing ends at the Marina di Scarlino, where the Gulf of Follonica has given its best, providing four days of wind from North East.

After 30 knot winds prevented any racing on day one, with winds over 35 knots, ten excellent regattas were held in the subsequent days, where the fleet gave a veritable spectacle, with an alternation of race-winners that made it impossible to predict the final winners until the last downwind leg.

The job of PRO Maria Torrijo, who intercepted the best weather windows, to allow the safe dispute of the tests, was extraordinary.

The event represented the fourth and penultimate leg of the 44Cup circuit, where the Slovenian team of Ceeref, at the top of the circuit classification, had to give way to the British Team Aqua. Now the battle remains open, until the final event in Lanzarote in one month's time.

Meanwhile, Yacht Club Isole di Toscana is already working hard to build 2022 racing calendar, where exciting international racing events are already agreed.

Alongside the yacht club, the consolidated presence of Rigoni di Asiago, daring a sweet touch to welcoming the racers, with an eye always attentive to environmental sensitivity and the quality and ethics of the products.
