imageThree medals, five crews in the top ten and an overall growth of the whole team: thus ends, with a positive balance, the Italian Olympic Team’s trip to Miami, where the U.S. leg of the ISAF Sailing World Cup, the world circuit of Olympic and Paralympic classes, took place and for six days put on a show in the clear waters of Biscayne Bay.

After Vittorio Bissaro and Silvia Sicouri won gold on Saturday (the second consecutive gold in the World Cup in Miami)., absolute protagonists of the Nacra 17 Olympic class throughout 2014 and so irresistible in Florida that they won with a day to spare, thus before the Medal played today, and after the bronze medal won by Marco Gualandris and Marta Zanetti in the Paralympic class Skud 18 (the second after the one won last year in Halifax, Canada, during the IFDS World Championships), Italian sailing got a third medal, thanks to the fantastic performance of Giulia Conti and Francesca Clapcich in the 49er FX clase. The two azure women, already bronze medalists at the World Championships in Santander, defended their second position this morning in a great way, going on to win the Medal Race of the 49er FX class, ahead of their direct opponents, the reigning World Champions Grael-Kunze from Brazil: silver medal, then, another outstanding achievement by the two azure women.

Medal Race great for Bissaro-Sicouri as well, who took to the water with the gold medal already around their necks, but still won the regatta reserved for the top ten in the rankings, demonstrating crazy technical and mental superiority, while it went less well for Mattia Camboni (10th in the final race and overall) and Flavia Tartaglini, who missed out on the podium due to an OCS (early start) that compromised her final ranking, which closed in fourth place. Michele Paoletti, the last of the five Italians racing today, finished the Medal in sixth place, eighth overall.
