Sail-World.com : Barros and Coutts team takes RC 44 Cup event win

Barros and Coutts team takes RC 44 Cup event win

With three matches and five fleet regattas sailed in five days, the Friuli Venezia Giulia RC 44 Cup won’t remain in the history books as one of sailing’s greatest moments. Luckily, yesterday’s regattas were great, and such was the atmosphere and the Italian hospitality, turning the event into a great happening despite the absence of wind.

With top four results in all five races (1, 4, 4, 3, 2), Patrick de Barros’ Team Banco Espirito Santo, with Russell Coutts at the tactics, wins the event ahead of Armando Giuliett’s Team Hiroshi - Città di Milano and Chris Bake’s Team Aqua.

The next regatta of the RC 44 Championship Tour 2008 is also the season’s most important regatta: the Gold Cup. The event will take place on December 10-14 in Puerto Calero, on the Canaries Islands, and promises to be intense. Indeed, Banco Espirito Santo and Team Aqua have closed the gap on the Championship Tour leaders, Team Hiroshi – Città di Milano and Ceeref. No doubt the fight for podium positions will be intense, and hopefully with a good breeze!

The RC 44 yachts will sail the Barcolana regatta tomorrow, against 1,500 other yachts. They will then be delivered to Portoroz on Monday, dismantled, stored in their purposely built containers and trucked to Hamburg with the support of DHL before being shipped to the Canaries Islands.
