Pietro D’Ali and Carlo Brenco win the Corsica for Two

corsica for twoPietro D’Alì and co-skipper Carlo Brenco with the Class 40 bet1128 crossed the Corsica finish line first at 11:18 a.m. this morning for Due on Saturday. A very difficult regatta: “Calm, calm, calm for almost the entire regatta, the wind showed up very little but we always fought all the way.”

A battle against unfavorable weather, two competitors dropped out, but the D’Alì/Brenco pair managed to outdistance their pursuers-for most of the race-Boerio/Conforto on Pegasus and Vanelo/Pastine on Stella Filante-a fine satisfaction for the two skippers of bet1128-the class40 of Gaetano Mura that the Sardinian sailor entrusted in good hands-despite the becalmed weather: “We had a great time, yesterday we are at sunset we were brave to go out of the Giraglia. A choice that rewarded us, when we came out of the cone of the island we found good wind. It was two hours and 20 miles of beautiful gliding,” the two sailors recount, “a troubled night. The boat was wonderful, a beautiful object where everything works perfectly. It’s like being welcomed into someone’s home that you feel like using it on tiptoe.” For Carlo Brenco it was a great experience, “Peter is outstanding, but everyone knows that.”

Finished the unfailing crossing, by now a ritual, the selfie between the two sailing companions who the day after tomorrow in San Remo, for the third leg of the Italian j/70 championship, will be opponents. Gaetano Mura owner of bet1128: “Many people have asked me if I willingly entrust the boat to others, but entrusting it to Pietro is a bit like Rafa Nadal asking to borrow your racket to play a tournament. He can only return it to you more tuned than before.”
