It was a celebration beyond expectation that involved the 114 boats that filled the sea in Genoa today for the first TAG Heuer CUP. Aeolus lingered, leading crews to a decidedly crowded start until a light southeast entered and then turned west as the coast warmed.

The boats with the most advantage were those that chose the shoreline to Bogliasco because due to the lower contrary current. Thus, the route chosen was confirmed to be rather tactical.

Moving ahead of everyone on the return was the Mylius 19e95 Twin Soul, followed by the Swan 70 Flying Dragon and the First 45 Obsession.

Now it’s time for the crews to continue the celebration ashore, with the big party at the TAG Heuer VELAFestival. And doors open to all again this evening for VELAFestival Night, music and dancing on the water.
