Today was the opening day, that ,in the car field is equivalent to reconnaissance. A race to test the waters, to understand the air motion out there, where, from tomorrow, the first points will be assigned.
For Vasco Vascotto and the boys of Pisco Sour the opportunity to measure themselves against the other boats was good. The TP52 with the unmistakable sail number CHI-2110 finished in sixth place behind the winner Thierry Peponnet, helmsman on Bribon.
On board with the team of Dabliù Sail Project, besides their message of solidarity on behalf of the childhood embodied in the the Foundation Milan, the president of the Harbor authority of Alicante, Miguel Campoy who, at the end of the race, declared: "I always get on these swift boats with the crews that represent the better part of the world of sail with emotion. The town and the port of Alicante are proud of to have accommodated this splendid show this year."
"We are happy with the general setup of the boat" said Vasco Vascotto, Skipper and Tactician of Pisco Sour III. "Tomorrow we will come down to the water with concentration."
