Act 1 – Monaco: Team Neverland confirms itself as leader
Borderline conditions today in Monaco allow sailing only 3 races
Monaco, April 8th, 2017
An extremely light breeze, that never went above 3 knots, didn’t allow the conclusion of more than four races also in this second day of regattas in Monaco for the M32 fleet, involved in the first act of the M32 Mediterranean Series.
The conditions were borderline for sailing, so much that one of the races lasted 45 minutes and all the others, supposed to be a one-turn windward leeward, lasted more than the 15-minutes target time.
After the success of yesterday, Guido Miani at the helm of Team Neverland confirms himself as leader of the day for the second time in a row, scoring two bullets, a fourth and a third. Candidate Sailing Team performs well in the second day of racing, but still doesn’t manage to recover from the sixth place in overall ranking obtained after the races of yesterday. The other two bullets of the days went to Andrea Lacorte’s Vitamina Veloce and Patrik Sturesson’s Vikings.
After eight races, Team Neverland steadily maintains the leadership with 19 points, while all other crews are very close to each other within a margin of just 6 points: the races of tomorrow, hopefully sailed in more consistent windy conditions, will be essential to determine who is going to get on the podium of the first event of the M32 Mediterranean Series.
Provisional 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
