“Flying Cloud” and “Low Noise” dominate in Alassio.

alassioThe International Offshore Sailing Week, the traditional opening event of the “racing between the buoys” season, ended in Alassio, Savona. About 40 boats (ORC and IRC) were at sea, as well as a large contingent of J70s and J80s. Three trials held (five for one-designs) characterized by a pleasant 10-15 knot westerly: one on Friday, two on Sunday. It was only Saturday that people were left dangling waiting for a wind that never came.

ORC 1-2
Let’s start with the ORC class, where in classes 1-2 the Millennium 40 “Flying Cloud” of Davide Noli (YC Porto Maurizio) triumphed, followed by the Sydney 46 “GLS Stella” of the Fava/Cavalieri pair (YC Parma). In third place was “Forrest Gump III.” FY 49 by Roberto Tamburelli (YC Sanremo).

ORC 3-4
In the 3-4 grouping, Giuseppe Giuffré’s (YC Chiavari) M37 “Low Noise” won, ahead of Giuseppe Tadini’s Dufour 34 “Baciottinho” (also sailing for YC Chiavari). On the lowest step of the podium is “Energy,” IMX 40 by Fabio Caroli (CN Vadese Wind).

In IRC, “GLS Star”, “Flying Cloud,” and “First Fun” (First 40 by Karinne Perroux) made up the leading trio in divisionr 1-2, while “Kissinho” finished ahead in the 3-4 followed by Massimo Schieroni’s J92 “Robi and 14” (LNI Savona) and “Adrenalina,” Massimo Sanna’s Farr 31 (CN Loano).

J70 AND J80

Aboard J70 and J80 monotypes were the “creme” of Italian sailing. Carlo Alberini, Branko Brcin, Sergio Brosi and Irene Bezzi won among the J70s, followed by the team composed of Giuseppe Zavanone, Andrea Magni, Marco laurino and Alessandro Zampori. In third place was the Di Mauro – Spata – Spata – Pusterla quartet.
