Sail-World.com : Alberto Signorini wins X-35 World Championship

Alberto Signorini wins X-35 World Championship

'X-35 Rolex World Championship 2008'   

There was a fresh breeze and clear skies at Cala Galera for the last day of racing of the X-35 World Championship, organized by the Yacht Club Italiano and the Circolo Nautico e della Vela dell’Argentario in partnership with Rolex.

The record fleet of 54 boats cast off from the quays of Cala Galera and headed out to sea at 10.30. The excellent weather conditions, with an east-northeasterly wind of between 16 and 18 knots and swell waves permitted a closely fought first heat that started at 11.15.

The race was dominated by three boats that finished well ahead of the rest of the fleet: Mike Richmond and his British crew in Cool Runnings crossed the line first, ahead of Celox skippered by Achim Griese of Germany (silver medallist in the Star class at the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984) and by Raimondo Cappa’s Sberressa with Francesco De Angelis and Lars Borgstrom aboard.

The wind dropped slightly, settling at around 12-14 knots for the second race of the day that got underway just after 13.00. It was won by the Dutch crew aboard Nicholas Bol’s Quantum Racing Holland, followed by Alberto Signorini’s L’Irascibile with Tommaso Chieffi calling the tactics and by Pietro Nicolini’s Ave Maria.

At the end of the ten races held from Wednesday 24 September through to Saturday 27 September, Alberto Signorini’s L’Irascibile was crowned X-35 World Champion 2008.

X-35 - Leading standings after the ten races, 54 entries:

1. L’Irascibile, Alberto Signorini 46 points
2. Foxy Lady Atlantica Sistemi, Antonio Sodo Migliori 69 points
3. Cool Runnings, GBR, Mark Richmond 75 points
4. Lelagain, Alessandro Solario 78 points
5. Quantum Racing Holland, Nicholas Bol 82 points
