Porto Cervo, Italy. 25th June 2010. The ten crews competing in this first leg of the Farr 40 European Circuit got in their first race in light and shifty conditions today. Massimo Mezzaroma’s Nerone, with Vasco Vascotto calling tactics, dominated from the off and rounded the first leeward mark ahead of Fiamma, with tactician Ray Davies, and Plenty, owned by Alexander Roepers following. Nerone, fresh from winning the class World Championship in April of this year, held her lead to the finsh line while Fiamma lost ground, leaving Plenty in second place and Enfant Terrible, with Pietro D’Alì aboard, in third.

Racing is scheduled to continue tomorrow, Saturday 26th, at 12 midday with 6 to 8 knots of east south-easterly breeze predicted. The Race Committee will hold as many races as possible.
