1435681212-19293130602_f9223323e6_kThe ORC World Championship continues apace after Wednesday’s forced break due to no wind. Yesterday the long, 63.8-mile race from Barcelona to Blanes and back was run. Let’s take a look at the situation: the blue crews are doing very well: someone has lost positions, someone has made up positions, the fact is that we are still there, at the top of the various category rankings, with two trials to go.

xioORC A – BLUE CHALLENGE TO TWO AT THE TOP
After six trials, Marco Serafini’s Xio (CV Portocivitanova) has overtaken reigning world champion Alberto Rossi’s (Ancona YC) Enfant Terrible Minoan Lines, which remains only half a point behind. Behind the two TP52s from the Marche region, the void. Peruvian Eduardo Wong’s Soto 48 Kuan Kun is a full 24 points behind. Of note were the fifth position of the other Italian TP52, Roberto Monti’s Airis (skipper Cesare Bressan, Il Portodimare club), the ninth of Andrea Masi’s Swan 45 Random Research Ulika (CN Tecnomar) and the tenth of Luca Locatelli’s Thetis (YCCS), also a Swan 45.

sideracordisORC B – THREE ITALIANS IN THE TOP FIVE
Too bad for Giumat 2, Flavio Enrico Trusendi’s IMX45 (skipper Francesco Cruciani, YC Livorno circle), which slipped from first to fifth place after two down trials. Rising to third and fourth, respectively, were Pier Vettor Grimani’s X-41 Sideracordis (CDV Venice, skipper Andrea Tedesco) and Gianclaudio Bassetti’s WB Five (CN Pescara). She leads, by as many as 13 points, Spanish legend Pedro Campos’ Swan 42 CS Movistar, followed by José Maria Meseguer’s twin Pez de Abril.

ORC C – DAI LOW NOISE II!!!!

The Italia 9.98 Low Noise II of current world champion Giuseppe Giuffré (YC Chiavari), skippered by Duccio Colombi, climbed to second place just one point behind the leader, Dane Michael Mollmann aboard Hansen, a fast X-37. On the third step of the podium is the other X-37, Alberto Moro’s Solventis (skipper Manuel Bermudez). In fourth place was Estonian Ott Kikkas on the NM38 S Sugar 2, with Sandro Montefusco as skipper; in seventh was Total Lubmarine Scugnizza, the other NM38 S owned by multiple world champion Enzo de Blasio (CC Napoli). In tenth place was Sagola Biotrading, Peppe Fornich’s Grand Soleil 37 B (YC Favignana).
