The Swiss team wins GP3 and shoots to the top of the Persico 69F Cup.

"The duel with Section16 was pretty tight until the end, they managed to improve quite a lot during the week which made our life a bit harder. It was really interesting racing with them.

At the moment we're first in the championship standing and there is only one GP to go and for sure there will be a very fierce fight! It will be hard to keep the first place, but in Torbole we stepped up our game and we're confident on our speed and manoeuvres.

We think we can keep our first place until the end of the season."

Arnaud Grange - Okalys Youth Project

"Okalys Youth Project only started with 69F this year and we are all still learning a lot. We finished first in this GP and second on the last one, which hopefully it's a good sign, it means we improve race by race and we hope we manage to win the Persico 69F Cup."

Hugo Fedrigucci - Okalys Youth Project

"I think it is a beautiful event, very fun and also very enjoyable thanks to the flawless organization. The boats are very fun, having Simone on board was useful to have two points of reference, and I am pleasantly impressed with Ulrich Volz and his skills on this boat as owner-driver and helmsman. Without a doubt it is a boat that can give strong emotions even without having too much experience."

Jacopo Plazzi Marzotto - SDS Swiss Dental Solutions

"The main difference between being a crew member and a helmsman is physical fatigue, which on the one hand is the beauty of sport, you feel it significantly less at the helm. Moreover, when you helm you have to be one hundred percent focused on making the boat go as fast and safe as possible, while when I am mainsail trimmer on Flying Nikka I have a much clearer view of the race course as a whole. "
