The last event of the season, organized by Yacht Club Isole di Toscana, kicks off on Thursday 7 October, with the logistical and technical support of Marina di Scarlino and Scarlino Yacht Service.

Nine boats competing, representing 6 nations, to fight for the title of world champions of the famous 44-foot one-design.

The Scarlino event is the fourth of the 44 Cup, which saw the teams racing in Slovenia (Portoroz), Sweden (Marstrand) and Great Britain (Cowes) and which will end in Spain (Lanzarote) next November.

Today the teams faced off in the practice race, where in addition to testing the set-up and sharpening their weapons for the championship, the teams were able to try their hand at robotic marks equipped with GPS technology. An intense day, with an increasing NW wind, which allowed the teams to appreciate the regatta area of the Gulf of Follonica, protected by Elba Island, and which allowed to race even when the whole Northern Tyrrhenian was prohibitive.

Marina di Scarlino will see the debut of the first ever female owner-driver within the class, the lawyer Valeriya Kovelenko, at the helm of ArtTube.

Principal Race Officer Maria Torrijo will oversee the direction in the water, and Marco Mercuriali will lead the Umpiring team.

Among the favorites the Slovenian team Ceeref, at the top of the circuit standings on an equal footing with the British Team Aqua. On the lowest step of the podium, 4 points behind, the French team of Aleph Racing.

Alongside the yacht club, the consolidated presence of Rigoni di Asiago, to give a sweet touch to the welcome of the racers, with an eye always attentive to environmental sensitivity and the quality and ethics of the products.
