Persico 69F ITAS Assicurazioni Grand Prix 2.2 in Malcesine - Overall

by Persico 69F 25 Sep 03:36 PDT 22-24 September 2020

A race (won) was enough for Young Azzurra to seal the victory in the ITAS Assicurazioni Grand Prix 2.2 of Persico 69F Cup. Malcesine saw a bad wind on the final day - a very unusual condition for the location - but the boat with the Under 25 team of Ettore Botticini, Federico Colannino, Francesca Bergamo and Erica Ratti, launched by Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, debuted and beat both younger and expert sailors.

"We're happy," says Botticini, "as I've already said, we trained a lot on this boat, but on our own. In this event we felt what it means to be in the fray. Our balance and our training are working, and this is great news." The team will be racing also in the next stage, Grand Prix 3.1, scheduled in Malcesine from October 1st to 3rd, wishing for a better wind, typical of Lake Garda.

Second place for this event goes to FlyingNikka 47 and the third place goes to RHKYC Team Agiplast, the Hong Kong athletes that, after a long stay in Italy to train and race on the Persico 69F, are getting ready to fly back home, where they'll find their monotype set and ready to welcome them for new training sessions, with the goal to be in 2021 circuit. The teams FlyingNikka 74 and FP Sailing close the board.

Lorenzo Bressani, foil controller of FlyingNikka 47, declares their love for this boat: "We're witnessing a great success and I think all the owners and all young sailors should try foiling and, in particular, try the Persico 69F. It's a boat that, thanks to the development of the organizers, it's easy to sail, exalts the speed, challenges you to learn how to adjust the foils. In every stage we see new owners and new guys on the circuit, it's a very strong and interesting sign; all of us should try to fly on water."

Final Ranking:

1 - Young Azzurra - 49 points (Ettore Botticini, Federico Colaninno, Erica Ratti, Francesca Bergamo)
2 - Flying Nikka 47 - 35 points (Roberto Lacorte, Lorenzo Bressani, Enrico Zennaro, Ruggero Tita, Simone Salvà)
3 - RHKYC Team Agiplast - 31 points (Calum Gregor, Maria Cantero, Nicolai Jacobsen)
4 - Flying Nikka 74 - 25.5 points (Alessio Razeto, Lorenzo De Felice, Andrea Fornaro)
5 - FP.Sailing - 15 points (Alessandro Caldari, Giacomo Bandini, Lorenzo Franceschini)
