International Contender European Championship at Circolo Vela Arco - Day 2

by Elena Giolai 31 Jul 2018 18:23 PDT 28 July - 3 August 2018

For the second day of the Contender European Championship, organized by the Circolo Vela Arco, the southerly wind was more sustained than the first day and the Italians seem to want to play a leading role as the class celebrates 50 years.

The champion of the Vela Club Campione, Marco Ferrari, wanted to dominate the second day of racing on Garda Trentino with two bullets which allowed him to extend his advantage over Antonio Lambertini (Yacht Club Domaso) who after four races remains second, but now 16 points behind the leader.

I was a great day for British sailor Simon Mussell, now third overall after a 2-1 day, followed by the Dutch sailor Verhallen, the Germans Schlienkamp and Muller (1-4), the Briton Noble, the Danish Andreasen who recovered some positions, the German Rethmeier and tenth David Fontana, second in the last race of the day.

The programme continues with two more races a day (which usually last one hour each) ahead of the finals on Thursday and Friday where the top half of the general classification will race in the gold fleet.

Full results can be found here.
