Less than a week to go around Italy on a sailing boat. Departure from Genoa on September 16th, the maxi Pendragon of the Light Bay Sailing Team crossed the finish line in Trieste, completing the 1,130 miles of the longest non-stop offshore race of the Mediterranean in 6 days and 18 hours of navigation, establishing the time of reference of this fascinating and demanding Rounditaly regatta organized by Società Velica di Barcola e Grignano and Yacht Club Italiano.
During the sailing week, Carlo Alberini’s maxi, fully equipped with Armare Ropes products, encountered all kinds of weather and sea conditions, from the initial storms to the high pressures along the descent of the Tyrrhenian Sea, to then turn and go up the entire Adriatic against the wind and in rough seas.
But the regatta is not over yet. Behind Pendragon three Class 40 are sailing towards Trieste, where they are expected between Friday and Saturday; they are Karnak by Stefano Raspadori, Kika Green by Cristiano Verardo and Ediliziacrobatica by Ernesto Moresino.
The First 44.7 Argo of Luciano Manfredi continues its solitary route. It is author of a brilliant regatta and, at this moment, could have many chances of a victory on compensated time, considering that both he and Pendragon race in IRC.
