Rolex Capri Sailing Week - Rolex Volcano Race spectacular final day

Rolex Volcano Race 2011 is taking place in a spot that is considered to be a stunning and famous locale. The La Canzone del Mare is located within the Bay of Marina Piccola and has awe inspiring views of the Faraglioni and the sparkling waters of the Tyrranean Sea.

The Rolex Capri Sailing Week guests had the opportunity to basque in a beautiful environment and enjoy a gourmet buffet within the confines of the magnificent waterside terraces. After enjoying a world class dinner, the party was treated to a special montage of Rolex Capri Sailing Week, which included stunning imagery of the race and a dance that ensued into the night.

Today, there was some spectacular racing in the Bay of Naples for the final day of Rolex Capri Sailing Week. A light blanket of cloud high above the magnificent island of Capri signified a steady gradient breeze. Out on the six-mile windward leeward course, twelve knots of wind and glorious sunshine provided ideal conditions to bring the inshore regatta to conclusion.

In the Comet Class, Marco Paolucci's Libertine won the first race of the day putting pressure on the class leader, but Alberto Franchella’s Farewell 3 won the last two races of the regatta to take the title.

The Swan 45 Class has enjoyed some scintillating racing. Henrik Brandis’ German entry Earlybird won the first two races of the day, stamping their authority on the event to take the class victory. Andrea Masi’s Ulika has sailed with precision all week and finished the regatta in style, winning the last race and securing second place for the class.

The ORC division produced a convincing winner: Vincenzo De Blasio’s Scugnizza won all but one of the seven races. Olympic medalist, America’s Cup and World Match Racing exponent, Paolo Cian was calling tactics on Scugnizza. He comments:

'Today was a good example of the fantastic conditions in Capri, I have been sailing here for a very long time and Capri brings back very happy memories for me, especially winning the J24 World Championship. Scugnizza is a small boat in this fleet and we were always conscious of trying to stay in clear air. I am very happy for Vincenzo and all of the crew who have sailed so well all week. Capri is my favourite place to come to, especially for sailing.'

The Prize Giving was held at the Yacht Club Capri in the safe confines of the beautiful Marina Grande. Massimo Massacesi, President of Yacht Club Capri, presided over the ceremony.
