Rolex Capri Sailing Week με Ελληνική Συμμετοχή

Great first day of racing at the Rolex Capri Sailing Week
Capri, May 21st 2008
The first day of racing at the Rolex Capri Sailing Week, organized by Yacht Club Capri and Rolex, proved to be interesting today. The 40 participating yachts were not stopped by the early morning downpour and as scheduled by the Race Committee, the gun for the first race was fired at 12 p.m. On the 30 mile long offshore course from the Island of Capri to the Island of Ischia and return competitors sailed in a 13 knot breeze and rough seas, the remainder of yesterday’s storm that grounded all commercial ferries between Capri and the mainland. The race was particularly challenging for Swan45 Earlybird who lost a sail overboard and for Comet45 I.nova who burst her spinnaker on the finishing line. All yachts concluded the race minutes before another downpour submerged the island.
The first to return to the harbor was Alfa Romeo at about 2.15 p.m. with the rest of the fleet lagging behind by an hour. As every year it was a memorable show to see the yachts cutting the line just in front of the harbor of Marina Grande.
For the scoreboard’s purpose the offshore race is
valid as two separate races: Capri- Formiche di Vivara the first and Formiche di Vivara – Capri the second.
Η Ελληνική συμμετοχή είναι το σκάφος "AELA" (Swan 42), της Μιράντας Παπαδοπούλου. Μετά τις πρώτες ιστιοδρομίες βρίσκεται στην τέταρτη θέση της κλάσης του.
