 BICCHIERE MEZZO PIENO - Day 1 Report from the field

Thanks to the good mood of the Race Committee, the first day has brought at home one race for each class.
Maybe a bit too much conservative to try to launch the second race that at the end this has brought to rise the AP flag over Alpha flag (in my opinion, I would taken the risk to launch the ClubSwan 50 a.s.a.p arrived the last of it and if needed delete the race on a Mark, but the R.C. know his job, and I was just on the press-boat).

ClubSwan 50: Perhonen GBR-023

The crown of the beautiful of the year is the last born Perhonen GBR-023 with her RED paint, Sorry Mathilde! Also a note for the “cangiante” blue-grey-violet of Stella Maris.

In the big class the fight is very close, and with a great tactics the race has been dominated by Skorpios (that had been k… damage in the crash last year http://bit.ly/2DCv97r ).

The flagship of the fleet CuordiLeone, helmed by the guest S.A.R. Principe Carlo di Borbone delle Due Sicilie supported by the King of the sails Ken Read, a regal boat, didn’t have a good first part, but at the end has showed a very good speed and has closed the gap with the first. At the third place we find MATHILDE SUI-5004 that on the second hoist of gennaker had a caramella (candy).

For the others classes, due to some defection (it’s really a pity that owners of 42 and 45 are not more active in Monaco) and the time spent to follow the bigger one, I’ve few word for them, in any case on the arrival line, the the fight was still on fire.

It was clear that more emotion than last year was impossible  but the forecasts are switching off our hopes for the rest of the event, so we keep fingers crossed.
