Trofeo Luigi Carpaneda – Alassio

5-7 April

 Second stage of season for the Smeraldas


For the second stage of the season the Smeralda 888 fleet were to be found in Alassio for the Trofeo Luigi Carpaneda (non-championship regatta), with seven teams completing nine races in a 5-10 knot breeze. As always it was a hotly contested regatta for these highly experienced sailors, won by YCCS’s Germano Scarpa and his team on Giada followed by Luigi Guarnaccia (Capocaccia) with Yacht Club de Monaco’s Timofey Sukhotin completing the podium on Beda. Another YCM member, Roberto Tamburelli (Botta Dritta) came in 5th ahead of Andrea Startari (Gorilla Gang) 5th and Matteo Noferi (Kzi Mo d’Eau) 7th. Next up for the Smeralda 888 fleet is Saint Tropez from 19-21 April for the Hippocampe Cup.
