July 8-10 2016 Gaeta, Italy
Gaeta again lived up to its reputation for providing some of the very best racing. Racing started between 1030 and 1130 daily depending on the arrival of the breeze. Then perfect sailing until the early evening.
Day 1 saw Serpentine in the form that would take them to the end of the event. Total mastery of the boats and the conditions. With almost military precision they hacked their way through their opponents one by one. Spinnaker was an early victim of this onslaught…and not until the third round robin was Spinnaker to emerge as a real threat…a devastating defeat at the close of Day 2 placed Spinnaker back as favourites to win… and so it would have been had a final not been sailed.
Race 1 and Spinnaker had the edge, but after that Serpentine somehow refreshed came back hard. A tightly fought duel, but Serpentine broke through to win. Race 3 and it was Serpentine all the way to the Winners podium.
Gaeta welcomed a Scandinavian team formed around a Swedish core to the 2K Circuit. We look forward to seeing them in Hamburg and Venice.
