Italy J/24 Winter Series Update: VIGNE SURRAU Wins Sardinia Series
March 11, 2017
Eleven teams participated in the waters off the port of Puntaldia in the municipality of San Teodoro for the winter series finale. After 12 exciting races, the team on VIGNE SURRAU from Circolo Nautico Arzachena ended up winning the winter series in Sardinia. Also on the podium in second and third, respectively, were ITA 460 BOTTA DRITTA owned & skippered by Mariolino Fraietta and ITA 431 LNI CARLOFORTE sailed by David Gorgerino. “The wind remained fairly constant, with an intensity of 10-12 knots with a few gusts,” said Pietro Sanna. “On both days, there was a greater wind pressure on the left side of the playing field, so much so that even with windshifts going right, the left still paid off! The victory of VIGNE SURRAU was far from obvious given the competition, but they managed to prevail in the end.” For more Italian J/24 winter series information, visit http://www.j24.it/web/.
