low-noiseFour trials held, four firsts. Giuseppe Giuffré (2014 World and European offshore sailing champion with the M37 Low Noise) may change boats, but the results remain the same. The Italia Yachts 9.98 Low Noise 2 was the great protagonist of the Settimana Internazionale di Vela d’Altura di Alassio (Savona), a traditional event organized by Circolo Nautico al Mare valid as a qualifying regatta for the 2015 Italian Championship, winning handily the largest grouping, ORC 3-4. A string of successes that has continued since the Milan-based publisher launched Matteo Polli’s custom project last September.

It may no longer be the Offshore Sailing Week of its heyday, when close to 100 boats were on the starting line, but the level of the fleet still remained high. On the first two days of racing, the wind, from the southwest, fluctuated between 10 and 15 knots, while the more than 30 knots recorded on the last day resulted in the cancellation of the scheduled races.

In IRC 0-2 victory went to Mario Rossello’s First 45 Obsession (LNI Savona), followed by Flying Cloud, Davide Noli’s Millennium 40 (YC Sanremo). On the lowest step of the podium was Alberto Franchi’s (CN Marina di Carrara) Farr 40 Marble. In the IRC 3-4 category, however, it was Paolo Sena’s X-35 Spirit of Nerina (YC Marina di Loano) that finished on top, ahead of Luigi Buzzi’s XP 33 Controcorrente (Varazze CN) and Marcello Maresca’s A35 Just a Joke (YC Italiano).

As for ORC 0-2, it was still Obsession that took the win, while the silver went to Energy, the IMX 40 of Fabio Caroli (CN Vadese Wind). On the lowest step of the podium was Flying Cloud. Behind the aforementioned Giuffré’s Low Noise 2 (YC Chiavari), in ORC 3-4, Spirit of Nerina took the place of honor ahead of Antonio Paolo Confalonieri’s Ufo 22 Miamilù (YC Sanremo).

A number of J80s were also in the race, with separate rankings: the strongest crew of all was the one captained by Michele Rayneri, followed by Michele Colasante’s crew and Roberto Bellardini’s crew.
