The Persico 69F Cup

GRAND PRIX 3.1 KICKS OFF IN MALCESINE

The Persico 69F Cup season comes to the halfway point with the Grand Prix 3.1 event.
From Thursday 1st to Saturday 3rd October, five crews, that by now are experts of the new foil monotype, will face each other on the race course of Lake Garda, in the confirmed operational base at the Fraglia Vela Malcesine.

Roberto Lacorte’s Team Cetilar returns to the starting line: the skipper, who is among the most competitive sailors on the circuit and in the running for the final victory, comes back with his two boats: FlyingNikka 47 (Lacorte, Bressani, Zennaro) and FlyingNikka 74 (Razeto, De Felice, Fornaro) .
G.P. 3.1 sees the comeback of another favorite crew, that of Young Azzurra (Botticini, Colaninno, Ratti, Bergamo): the sporting project of the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda in collaboration with the Italian Sailing Federation, fresh from the success obtained in event 2.2, is ready to compete again in the Garda waters before the home Grand Prix, the fourth in the season of the Persico 69F Cup, scheduled from 10th to 22nd November in Porto Cervo.
To race with these crews for the victory of the event there is also Nicola Celon who, at the helm of Fantastica 2 and flanked by the brothers Umberto and Pietro De Luca, will try to improve the second place conquered in event 2.1.
Completing the starting line, the new Skuillox Team, made up of Andrea Spagnolli and Kevin Rio, both participants of the Revolution Under 25 held in August in Gargnano, and Guido Gallinaro, who has gained numerous and precious hours of training and racing in recent weeks together with the young Dutch sailors of Kingdom Team Netherlands.
The weather forecasts predict challenging conditions for the organization and the crews over the three days: races will begin Thursday morning with dock-out set at 08:30 to catch the morning Peler which today, during the training session, gave peaks of 18 knots that pushed the Persico 69Fs up to over 31 knots of speed.

TEAMS
FLYINGNIKKA 47: Roberto Lacorte, Lorenzo Bressani, Enrico Zennaro
FLYINGNIKKA 74: Alessio Razeto, Lorenzo De Felice, Andrea Fornaro
YOUNG AZZURRA: Ettore Botticini, Federico Colaninno, Erica Ratti, Francesca Bergamo
