Trapani Cup day four - Seven-points separate the top three boats going into the final day of racing in Trapani. With no discards allowed at the RC44 events, no-one is taking bets on who will lift the RC44 Trapani Cup. Igor Lah and Michele Ivaldi on-board Team CEEREF turned the gas up on their opposition winning the day’s opening race; Team Aqua (Chris Bake/Cameron Appleton) did enough to stay in contention in second overall, while Katusha’s (Steve Howe/Andy Horton) win in the second race of the day pulled them up into the top three for the first time in Trapani.
