Monaco Winter Series
Dopo due mesi di inattività si torna a regatare in quel di Monaco. 32 le barche in acqua e Venerdi tre prove con onda e vento a salire. Noi decidiamo di regatare con le vele vecchie e cmq facciamo un po’ di errori in ogni prova (tocchiamo boa nella prima, 360 per un incrocio che vabbè e capottone alla fine della terza) e insieme a partenze non favolose ci fanno chiudere con parziali di 15-13-16 che ci posizionano al 14° della generale e 6º Corinthian.
Sabato diluvio e ventone e niente regate.
Oggi c’è il sole ma aspettiamo il vento…
Monaco Winter Series - Act 2
Finally, finally, finally !!! 🏆🥈
Today only a lot of sunshine and no wind and so, after years in the Class, the first big result arrived for our Team 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
In fact, we end this Act in 10th place in the General Classification and 2nd place in the Corinthian Classification, which counts (or is it? 🤷) as a Victory!
We’ve been making progress since last year and already at the end of last season we had some good regattas among the front runners, but also with bad runs. In the last Act we did well and in this Act we were among the firsts and we made good starts with our mainsail trimmer and tactician Fabio Boldrini @_fa_bald_ aka “Queen Victoria” aka “El Local” 😂😂 who called good tactics and together with the new sails (which seem to be going better than those with 2 full seasons 😅) we were very fast. 🚀🚀
We really deserve this podium and it is worth a lot for a team of friends, with a budget not comparable to the super teams and with zero training during the year, and together with the compliments we received from super level opponents made this weekend truly special.
I have to thank @bobbio1999 and Alessandro Musumeci who have always been in the boat on the various “Irruenza” and who made also today a super performance 👏🏻👏🏻
Now it’s rest time for a couple of months and back on the water in February for Act 3.
As usual, a big thank to our fantastic Club @yachtclubmonaco and to the J/70 Monaco Association 🇲🇨 for the support 🙏🏻
