Five bullet day for 2016 GC32 Racing Tour champion
GC32 Racing Tour press release issued on 16/10/2016

Franck Cammas and his crew on NORAUTO powered by Groupama Team France proved convincingly that their dominance of the 2016 GC32 Racing Tour was no fluke. On this closing day of Marseille One Design, held in at times in ‘top of the range’ conditions, the French team managed a perfect five-out-of-five score line. This left them a massive 24 points clear of American Jason Carroll’s second placed Argo.

On the 2016 GC32 Racing Tour leaderboard, NORAUTO’s only threat going into Marseille One Design was Sebastien Schneiter’s Team Tilt. The Swiss youth crew finished fourth, enabling Cammas and his crew to claim the 2016 GC32 Racing Tour trophy by a six point margin.

Todo concluye al fin…

Culminó hoy la Semana de Buenos Aires, organizada por el Yacht Club Argentino en su sede de Dársena Norte, con el auspicio de Galicia Éminent. Se realizó durante los días 1, 2, 8, 9 y 10 de octubre y participaron más de 1100 navegantes repartidos en alrededor de 770 barcos. Contó con más de ochenta colaboradores que tanto en el agua como en tierra dieron una mano para que este campeonato saliera tan bien.

La rampa recibió a los participantes con música y gritos de alegría.
Los Optimist comenzaron a bajar poco antes de las nueve de la mañana y en la bajada los esperaban con caramelos, para que tuvieran un día dulce.

Siguieron, como ya es habitual, las tres categorías de la clase Laser, los Cadet, 420, Snipe, 29er, F18 y Moth. Los Soling, Soto33, OD27 y
2.4 mR salieron poco después de los Optimist, pero sin pasar por el evento musical que protagonizaban los colaboradores de la rampa, siempre ejemplo de la seriedad.

Los J24, Conte24 y Match 30 ya han completado las regatas programadas por que hoy se quedaron durmiendo.

When the teams woke this morning it was still everything to play for. GAC Pindar’s Ian Williams needed to keep his head in the game in order to win the Ibiza event. Richard Davies had to keep Italia Sailing Team and Riccardo Simoneschi two places behind his Swiss team Section 16 in order to secure the series title for the first M32 Series Mediterranean. The game was set for maximum excitement with only a few points between the teams to change the outcome on this final day. Seven races were planned and anything could happen. This is when the weather gods decided to meddle and the thundershowers that came over the beautiful Spanish island of Ibiza forced the race management to postpone racing. After a couple of hours of anxious wait in the race village the dark clouds lifted and the teams set out to go racing.

The weather forecast for the day gave a prognosis of very light and shifty winds. But when the fleet came out to the race area just outside the beach of Ibiza the conditions presented beautiful wind of 7-10 knots in blazing sunshine.

These conditions allowed race director Mattias Dahlström to fire off no less than seven races as well as complete a number of exhibition races just outside the race village. With todays races added to the tally the race management of Aston Harald Sports have now produced over 1000 M32 races in 25 different events across the world in 2016. The locations have ranged from Australia, Bermuda, USA, Monaco, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Spain and more. And this is a record that is aimed to be broken already next year when more venues and nations join the M32 World.

After a test race this morning to try and get sailing in front of downtown Ibiza’s boardwalk the racing had to move outside of the harbour in search for stronger and more stable breeze. This became the start of some intense sailing with three different winners of the four races sailed.

The Series leader Italia Sailing Team with skipper Riccardo Simoneschi at the helm took one of the winning spots, but it wasn’t all so easy for the team. With a break down in the first race and a penalty in the last race at a gate rounding in a critical phase of the race Simoneschi couldn’t hold the top spot and has slipped to fifth place, a position he is not used to being in.
