DSK win today to move into 2nd overall

September 11, 2009 17:27 0 comments

The Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup 2009 heads into its final day with the division leaders poised to take their place on the victory podium.

Roma-Aniene still leads the standings, after a day that saw her lose her mainsail immediately after the start. Sailing the course under storm trysail might be different, but it relegated her to the role of walking wounded and into last place in the day’s race results. DSK Pioneer Investments (ITA) took the bullet and is now level on points with Roma, but with a discard coming into play tomorrow it will take another disastrous day on Roma to deny her the title. Andrea Casale, the tactician on DSK, acknowledges the unlikelihood of securing victory, but is pleased to be putting up a fight, “we’ve had our best, cleanest and steadiest day. We had an easy life because of the problem to Roma’s mainsail just after the starting line. It’s good to go into the last race with a little chance. It is good motivation for the crew to think they could win.” In his closing remarks, Casale revealed the sporting nature of the contest this week commenting that if results do not go their way tomorrow he would be happy to see the crew of Roma win.

Whatever the conditions tomorrow and whatever the results, there will definitely be a little bit of magic on the water. Whenever a group of maxis go racing anywhere in the world it is a spectacular sight. There is just something about Porto Cervo and the Maxi Yacht Rolex Cup that lifts it into a different league.

The final race takes place tomorrow, Saturday, with the first start scheduled for 11.30 CEST. The prize giving takes place tomorrow evening at 18.30 CEST on the Piazza Azzurra,

Discovery Sailing Project exists to provide offshore Sail Training adventures for all, from young people thirteen years old and up, to adults seeking adventure and new experiences. As a member of the Scout Association we offer voyages to all branches of the Scouting community, but we don’t limit our voyages to Scouts alone. We also run voyages for those with visual and hearing impairments and have recently set up an exciting new collaboration with ‘SENSE’, organising Sail Training voyages for young people who are Deafblind. Every year we are approached by companies seeking an effective and cost efficient corporate voyage or team building experience. We offer tailor made voyages to suit to your company’s needs. Adult voyages are for those aged 26 and over and are often referred to as ‘Open’ voyages. The itinerary for these trips is usually a little more leisurely but just as exhilarating! Please contact us to discuss your requirements. +(0)1489 580099 office@dsp.uk.com http://www.dsp.uk.com
