RS500 World Championship RS200, RS400 Eurocup day 1

by Elena Giolai on 24 Jul 2012
RS Eurocup/RS 500 World Championship © Elena Giolai/Fraglia Vela Riva
It's the start of another week of RS skiffs at Fraglia Vela Riva, this time with the World RS500 (double) Championships and a leg of The Eurocup RS200 and RS400. Although there is a predominantly British participation, there is also an important presence for the World Championships from The Netherlands, Sweden and Italy. There are about 100 boats in total.

Two races were held on this, the opening day of the event on Trentino Garda with a very light northerly wind and one light-medium wind coming from the south at about 10-12 knots.

RS500

Thirty-six boats were present at the starting gate and, for the moment, the British crew of Wilkins-Martin, World Champions in 2010, are in the lead with a fifth and a partial first. Two points behind with a first and a partial sixth, is the Dutch crew of Hitermann-Blom. In third place are Americans Howe- Heemskerk with a second and a seventh. First of the Italians are Maccari-Gommellini lying in sixth place (10-4).

Taming the beast-a conversation with Stuart Meurer of Parker Hannifin
While AC72 cats were fast, they difficult to control, so Oracle partnered with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way. If you watched videos of the AC72s racing in the 34th America’s Cup (2013), you’re familiar with the mind-boggling speeds that are possible when wingsail-powered catamarans switch from displacement sailing to foiling mode. While foiling is fast, there’s no disguising the platform’s inherent instability. Now, Oracle Team USA has teamed up with Parker Hannifin to innovate a better way.
