Roma per Uno/Due/Tutti 2024

Roma per Uno/Due/Tutti 2024. A well-attended, and eventful, edition of the classic Roma per Uno/Due/Tutti the 540-mile offshore regatta starting and finishing in Riva di Traiano, after circumnavigating the island of Lipari in the Aeolian archipelago, goes into the archives. There were 67 starters including a large group of the lively Mini 6.50 Class representing a return to Rome.

The whole eve was marked as usual by weather analysis, this year complicated by a scenario that was expected to be very complicated, and so it was. After an initial 48 or so hours of becalmed conditions, a disturbing front arrived that brought strong westerly and mistral winds to the Tyrrhenian Sea, making the ascent to Trajan hard and complicated.

Roma per Uno/Due/Tutti

The ORC Overall classification of Roma per Tutti, valid for the Italian Offshore Championship, was won by Neomind, German Sasha Schroeder’s Neo 430, the first real time boat across the finish line. Second place for Sagola Spartivento, Farr 45 of Fornich and Sorrentino. The two boats reversed positions in the IRC ranking. Third for Lunatika was the Sun fast 3600 of Guido Baroni and Alessandro Miglietti. The latter also won the Rome by Two ranking.

The Mini 650s raced on a course that was shortened during the regatta; they did not go as far as Lipari but rounded a virtual buoy between Ventotene and the Aeolian Islands to avoid the worst of the bad weather. Among the Proto won Eki 1089, by Cecilia Zorzi and Francesco Farci, among the Series Bip Bip 1043 (FRA) by Antonine Chapot and Aglare Ribon.

Among the Mini 650s is an unfortunate report of a nasty accident ended fortunately without any consequences for the sailors: the Mini Adventure, of skipper Simon Bretin and Scotsman Alec Frazer, wrecked near the port of Ostia, where the two were trying to take shelter from the bad weather during the ascent to the finish line. For them only much fright and no physical consequences.
