K6 Eurocup 2011 - High speeds on day one

'K6 Eurocup 2011 day one'    © Elena Giolai/Fraglia Vela Riva

K6 Eurocup 2011 is being held from 27 June to 1 July at Fraglia Vela Riva in Trentino Garda, Italy.

A glorious day with southerly 20 knots winds kicked off the K6 Eurocup, which takes place every two years with participants mainly from Germany and Great Britain. The event finishes on Friday 1s July after a total of 13 legs according to the schedule... winds permitting. The weather forecast however, looks very promising and participants, their staff and families will be able to enjoy a short break with sailing, wine and culinary events in good company!

Today's event got off to a great start with three exciting races. The clear skies let in warm, thermic winds, which reached 20 knots on the buoy line putting some crews in difficulty. High speeds were reached especially on the pace of the slack and it was soon evident who were in the running for a place on the podium.

Finishing in first place was last event's winner Ian Robson of Great Britain, who took the lead with two firsts and a third. There are however, at least six crews who are in contention for the top places. With two seconds and a fourth and lying in second place is the other Brit, Peter Kirby, followed by Dave Smithwhite, who after a sixth took a first and a fourth. In fourth place and one point behind is Jonathan Calascione, who achieved a solid second place in today's first race. Also in the running is Neil Fulcher, who today finished with two thirds and a DNF (did not finish), due to technical problems.

Races start tomorrow at 13:00, with another three legs scheduled.
