Seven-points separate the top three boats going into the final day of racing in Trapani. With no discards allowed at the RC44 events, no-one is taking bets on who will lift the RC44 Trapani Cup. Igor Lah and Michele Ivaldi on-board Team CEEREF turned the gas up on their opposition winning the day’s opening race; Team Aqua (Chris Bake/Cameron Appleton) did enough to stay in contention in second overall, while Katusha’s (Steve Howe/Andy Horton) win in the second race of the day pulled them up into the top three for the first time in Trapani.
There were race wins for Team CEEREF and Katusha before thunder and lightning caused racing to be abandoned for the day.
Team CEEREF are five-points clear at the top of the leaderboard from Team Aqua. Katusha move up into third, just two-points further adrift. Vladimir Prosikhin and Tomislav Basic’s solid day on-board Team Nika move them up into fourth, on equal points with the Torbjorn Tornqvist/Paul Cayard combination on Artemis Racing.
