Swan Tuscany Challenge from 26 to 30 April 2022
The Nations League circuit, dedicated to Swan One Design, kicks off in the best possible way at Marina di Scarlino, with two races with light southernly winds.
The first bullet goes to the German ClubSwan 50 Earlybird (the 470 Olympic medalist Will Ryan calling tactics), a veteran of the class and no stranger to the Gulf of Follonica race course, who, however, has to settle for a 9th place in the next race.
The second race, on the other hand, goes to the Austrian Stella Maris (calling tactics Nico Delle Karth), who with a third place in the first race is currently at the top of the standings, albeit on equal points with the Italian Drifter Sail, who with two regular placings (2-2) equals the points of the Austrian.
Among the ClubSwan 36, the Monegasque Gspot, holder of the 2021 circuit, wins the first race, having to settle for a 4th place in the following one, while the second race goes to he Swedish helmsman De Champs onboard Curodileone, who finished third in the first.
The leadership at the moment is maintained by Cuordileone (3-1 partials), followed by only one point by Gspot.
Short scoreboard and still long regatta, so it is difficult to draw conclusions on a competition that promises to be exciting, also in light of the values in the race.
The Yacht Club Isole di Toscana counts on the support of the Municipality of Scarlino, Marina di Scarlino, Scarlino Yacht Service and Resort Baia Scarlino.
To support the Club season, the consolidated relationship with the company of excellence Rigoni di Asiago, with which the passion for quality, sea, environment and clean energy are shared values.
