results day1

 

Eighteen boats are competing this week in the European Championship with skiffs coming from six countries and some well known names from the Southern Hemisphere.

The racing is over five full-on days with testing conditions likely to leave the No.1 rigs in their bags all week. The fleet are sailing for the first time from Circolo Vela Arco, still in the windy north end of the lake.

Day one saw a clean-sweep for the New Zealand team on Yamaha, with Jarrod Simpson's GBR 47 in second place. Behind the leading pair are a trio of Australian teams.

Results and write-ups at the end of each day can be found at the UK 18ft Skiff Grand Prix Facebook page and on the Circolo Vela Arco website.

COMINCIA OGGI L'EUROCUP 2017 18FT SKIFF

In una giornata soleggiata con modesto vento le prestanti imbarcazioni ad alta velocità sono uscite sulle acque gardesane per testare il campo di prova che da domani sarà teatro dell'EuroCup 2017 in scena al Circolo Vela Arco. L'organizzazione arcense, con il supporto della Fiv, è riuscita ad allestire una settimana di pura adrenalina. Monoscafi leggeri con abbondante superficie velica per sfidare l'Ora gardesana. Un mix di tecnologia e adrenalina, che necessita di equipaggi preparati ed affiatati perché il minimo errore può costare metri, secondi e in definitiva, la vittoria. Equipaggi pronti al via. Da domani sarà tutto uno show. Diciotto le imbarcazioni presenti provenienti da tutto il mondo con un'alta partecipazione di inglesi australiani e neozelandesi.
