Italian Offshore Championship: there’s a Blue Sky on the Crotone Sea

Full haul of regattas in Crotone for the Italian Campionato Italiano Assoluto Vela d’Altura, dedicated to ORC-stabilized boats. As many as 8 races completed all in medium to light breeze and sunny conditions that confirmed the goodness of the Crotone race course. Surprisingly, but not too surprisingly for those who follow offshore racing, the overall overall winner was the Grand Soleil 43 Blue Sky by Claudio Terrieri, which also wins the ranking in Class 1 R. Still strong performances for the new Italia 11.98, which placed Ott Kikkas’ Sugar 3 in second place overall, although the Estonian-flagged boat was not competing for the national title of course, and Scugnizza in fifth and victorious in Class 3.
