tany and taskyExciting finale for the “short” Rome by Two, the Riva per Due e per Tutti, which ended today with the arrivals of the boats that completed the route from Riva di Traiano to Ventotene and back. Two surprises, or at least the evidence that jumps out at you: the first is that the “for 2” turned out to be a regatta for close-knit spouses; the second is that if your name is not Tany & Tasky, you have no chance of success.

In fact, the two winners have the same names: Tany and Tasky IV, by Guido Deleuse and Alessandra Ligaro, the First 45 that won the Riva for 2, and Tany & Tasky II, by Claudio Gastaldi, the First 40.7 that won the Riva for All. In the “for 2,” in second place is another lui&lei couple, Marcello Bernabucci and Morena Frattari on Jolie, another First 45, while the third step of the podium was taken by Strega Rossa, with Gian Piero Salvatori and Paolo Munzi aboard. Behind them, still at sea, is another lui&lei boat, Maris Stella III, the Grand Soleil 50 owned by Andrea Ferrari and Elena Giovannini.


After the pairs of the Riva, we move on to the solitaires, where Gaetano Mura (bet1128) and Mario Girelli are engaging in an outstanding duel
. They are two Class 40s and two AOC sailors in skill and modesty. Gaetano Mura stands in front, despite a close encounter of the third kind with an underwater UFO, a large log that threatened to do damage. He was traveling at 5.2 knots with a heading of 344 while Mario Girelli was making 7 knots of speed and 2 miles behind at the last survey. Mario is a little further west than Gaetano and has set his bow at 352. As you can see the good sailors we have them. If they had means even more adequate to their capabilities, they could give great satisfaction to Italian ocean sailing. Those who can (sponsors), strike a blow.

In the “for 2” Neo Splinter of Andrea Caracci and Nino Merola continues to travel in the lead, but the old French foxes are coming out, who when they set their bows northward smell podium and champagne and start sniffing prey. Michel Cohen and Gwen Gbich on the Figaro Made in Midi (who arrived in Trajan solo from La Grande Motte to train a bit on the way) are in second place at 22 miles, while Laurent Camprubi and François Pailloux on the other Figaro Maracuja, follow detached by another 10 miles. Let’s see if Argo, Aeronautica Militare and Lunatika, who follow 6 to 8 miles behind, will be able to catch up before the finish.

In “for All,” Francesco De Angelis’ monologue at the helm of Michele Galli’s TP 52 B2 continues. In a few hours he will be in Riva. But behind him is the newcomer Durlindana 3, Giarcarlo Gianni’s new 18.30 Carrol Marine that snatched second place from Junoplano the 60-footer owned by Alex Ricci. Here, too, the fight for the podium becomes compelling, considering that Carlo Rocchi and Vittorio Biscarini’s Mylius, Ars Una is only 9 miles indiet
