Swan Tuscany Challenge, day 2

Swan Tuscany Challenge

Champagne sailing conditions throw the rankings wide open on day two of the Swan Tuscany Challenge. 
Italy’s Gulf of Follonica served up another day of near-perfect sailing conditions to the 23 crews of the Swan Tuscany Challenge. A stable 10-12 knot breeze and glassy seas made for good speeds with no distractions for the mixed amateur and professional crews aboard the fleet of ClubSwan 36s and ClubSwan 50 boats.
The day belonged once again to G-Spot, Giangiacomo Serena di Lapigio’s ClubSwan 36. He held onto his top position with a bullet, a third and a fourth place in the day’s racing.
“Our secret? It’s a lot of training. Even if it’s our first year in the Swan, we’re confident with the same crew we in the Melges for the last seven years,” said Serena di Lapigio. “The Swan is a really different boat. Upwind it needs to be heeling much more, then you’ve got the foils. Trying always to be consistent is our way – of course, we also try to win!”
In the bigger boats, Marcus Brennecke’s Hatari kept their cool with two impressive bullets. They would have leapfrogged Leonardo Ferragamo’s Cuordileone but for a tactical error in the final race which saw them finish ninth with a scoring penalty. Leonardo Ferragamo’s Cuordileone retains the top spot for the ClubSwan 50 fleet.
