Vasco Vascotto, tactician of Azzurra: “It was a splendid event, with good wind. We sailed very well, and it is a satisfaction to win at home. We are first in the circuit, first here, it couldn’t have been better than this!”
Riccardo Bonadeo, YCCS Commodore: “It was a very exciting week with a different team leading the standings every day. From the very beginning every crew put in their best effort and victory was on the line until the very end. Of course we are proud of the excellent performance of the new Azzurra, but above all as organizers we are pleased to have taken part in a week of great sportsmanship.”
