Calipso - 2013 ORCi World Championship Fabio Taccola
At the ORCi World Championship, with most boats getting in just under the 32-hour time limit, the long offshore race is finally over and the cumulative standings after three races are now in. All races scored have a point value of 1.0 points.

On the strength of an impressive 2-1-2 scorecard, Piero Paniccia's Cookson 50 Calipso IV has taken the lead in Class A. They won the short 57.46-mile offshore race late last night by 9:35 in corrected time over the largest boat in the class, the GS 56R Marina Kastela, but then trailed the larger boat by 28:29 this morning in corrected time after the finish of the 132-mile long race. While the canting-keeled Calipso is rated faster than Kastella, the two were not far from each other throughout the race.

And by having credible finishes of 5-3 in the two long races, Alberto Rossi's TP52 Enfant Terrible hangs on to the runner-up position on nine points, while Giorgio Martin's TP52 Aniene lies in third just two points back.

In Class B, Giuseppe Giuffre's M37 Low Noise is leading Class B by seven points over Vincenzo De Blasio's NM38S Scugnizza on the strength of 1-2-1 scores. Tied for third place on 20 points is UkaUka Racing's Comet 38S by the same name, with Giulio and Alberto Altieri's X-37 Minox.

Inshore racing resumes tomorrow with the first signal for the first race scheduled at 11:55 local time.
