Monaco, April 9th 2017 - Sunday brings no news in Monaco, where a forecasted light breeze actually never filled in, so that the six M32 involved in the first event of the M32 Mediterranean Series didn’t manage to conclude any race.
The balance of the first event, then, sees no changes in the ranking after the results of yesterday, formally delivering the victory to Team Neverland, helmed by Guido Miani, boat of the day in both the first and second day of racing, with a total of 19 points.
With 11 points of margin behind the leader, Vikings and Vitamina Veloce are tied in second position. Section 16 closes in fourth, with 30 points, just 1 point ahead of Riccardo Simoneschi’s Italia Sailing Team. Candidate Sailing team closes the ranking with 31 points.
“Let’s say we could have hoped for something better in this first weekend of the M32 Mediterranean Series. M32 are boats that can be sailed even with light wind conditions, but the most exciting part comes when breeze is consistent and the catamaran can show all its potentialities, and this couldn’t happen in this weekend" declared the helmsman of Italia Sailing Team, Riccardo Simoneschi, going on: “The fleet is growing and we hope more boats will join us during the season; people on shore seem to appreciate the fact that regattas can be followed from there and we’ll try as much as possible to keep going with this format all through the season, trying to make people thrill for sailing again”.
The season is going to continue with four more events, crossing all the Mediterranean up to Genova, for the “Salone Nautico” and Trieste, in concomitance with the Barcolana, as last event of the series.
Final ranking, after eight races:
1. Team Neverland, 19
2. Vikings, 29
3. Vitamina Veloce, 28
4. Section 16, 30
5. Italia Sailing Team, 31
6. Candidate Sailing Team, 34
