Difficult weather conditions off Saint-Tropez did little to dampen the spirits of the Swan One Design fleet gathered for the third round of The Nations Trophy Mediterranean League 2019 held within the inshore series of the Rolex Giraglia. Across the three competing classes – ClubSwan 50, Swan 45 and ClubSwan 42, competition was close and enthusiastic. Some 22 Swans took part in the one design racing.
In the ClubSwan 50 class, Leonardo Ferragamo and Cuordileone (ITA) returned to the fray with some authority, repeating the victory they achieved at the first event of the league in Monaco. It was repeat business in the Swan 45 class where Luís Senís Segarra and Porrón IX (ESP), winners in both Monaco and Scarlino, secured the overall win. In the ClubSwan 42 class, Carlandrea Simonelli’s Fantaghirò (ITA) extended the success of her debut in Scarlino topping the table once again. Italy was best-placed nation with Cuordileone combining with the Fantaghirò to win by six points from Germany, with Russia in third.
The fourth and final event for Swan One Design classes competing for The Nations Trophy Mediterranean League 2019 is the Copa del Rey Mapfre, hosted by the Real Club Náutico de Palma from 27 July to 3 August.
