A day with "all round" conditions, with four flights "full foil" in the morning, then a storm and two more races in the afternoon, with lots of low wind displacement mode sailing for two-thirds of the circuit.

Day one of the Persico 69F Revolution FCL set the first four finalists thanks to the six races that have been done: these are two Italian teams - Zeta Racing and FP Sailing - and two foreign teams composed by very young guys: RHKYC Team Agiplast and the Dutch Sail Janssen de Jong (both in training for the Youth America's Cup). These four teams were first and second placed in today's races, and they're waiting to know the rivals they will have to face to try to conquer the final and the title.

Zeta Racing arrived second in the "full foil" race in the morning: "The key of this afternoon," explained Enrico Zennaro, "was in knowing when to choose to go on the foil and when was the moment to go down, because when the wind slows it's better in the displacement mode. We won the crucial race of today in this way: starting on the foil and then going down at the right moment and finishing in displacement and with an advantage".

Zennaro is the leader of team Zeta Racing but is also the coach for Young Azzurra, the team of Yacht Club Costa Smeralda that is training for the Youth America's Cup: "The guys are learning, here I can work with them but also study the opponents, and I will meet them in the semifinals." In fact, in flight 12, the first semifinal, RHKYC Team Agiplast and the Dutch Sail Janessen de Jong will be two of the three direct opponents.

The compilation of the upper part of the table has been hard and competitive, but everyone can get back in the game, because the formula of the "Revolution" tomorrow will see the racers from the lower part of the table. Whoever gets first and second places will proceed.
