Some had harshly criticized the entry of the Nacra 17 among the new Olympic classes. But check out the photos at the SAR Princesa Sofia Trophy in Palma de Mallorca, valid as a leg for the ISAF World Cup: April 3, a “rump” arrived on the race course with 30-knot blows. Challenging conditions for all classes in the race, but especially for the mixed catamaran. But what a sight!
This is evidenced by some of the images here:
HOW STRONG VITTORIO BISSARO AND SILVIA SICOURI
Vittorio Bissaro and Silvia Sicouri (pictured at side, by Jesus Renedo), who in the previous leg of the ISAF World Cup held in Miami had achieved a splendid victory, thanks to their fourth place in the Medal took another extraordinary result, finishing second in the Palma races behind France’s Besson-Riou, confirming their position among the strongest international crews in the new mixed class. We can have high hopes for Rio 2016
