Magnificent weather conditions graced the waters of Capri for the second day of racing in the Maxi Yacht Capri Trophy. At 11am the Race Committee sounded the starting signal for a race of approximately 30 miles on a route that took the fleet from Capri to a mark off Sorrento and past Punta Campanella, before rounding the island counterclockwise. A breeze of 14 to 16 knots from the west accompanied the fleet on a fairly choppy sea.

Immediately after the start, Cippa Lippa X and Anywave took the lead for a match race that would last right to the finish line - which the two crossed just seconds apart. It was Cippa Lippa X, Guido Paolo Gamucci's Mylius 60 CK, that clinched line honours, but had to wait for the calculation of the results in compensated time to confirm their place in the rankings.

The corrected time results, in fact, awarded victory to Frà Diavolo, the Mylius 60 owned by Vincenzo Adessi, who also moves to the top of the overall leaderboard after two races. In second place today and second position overall is the Swan 601 Lorina 1895, owned by Jean-Pierre Barjon, while in third on both counts is the Swan 65 Shirlaf, owned by Giuseppe Puttini and expertly guided by tactician Gabriele "Ganga" Bruni. The classification is also beginning to take shape in the separate Performance and Classic classes: the first led by a trio composed of Frà Diavolo, Lorina 1895 and Cippa Lippa X, and the second headed by Shirlaf, Blue Oyster and Stella Maris.

Racing continues tomorrow with the start of the third race scheduled for 11 a.m. and the weather forecast confirming more of the same ideal conditions, with westerly winds of 15 to 20 knots.

Meanwhile in Naples, a large fleet has begun to arrive for the ORC European Championship. The coming days will be dedicated to registrations and measurement checks ahead of Saturday, when the Regata dei Tre Golfi, also valid this year as the offshore race for the ORC Europeans, will set off at 7 p.m.
