With 40 miles to go, a southwest storm began brewing. Winds were gusting from 28 knots to 35 knots causing 6 foot sea waves on a 10 foot swell. Team Giulietta Racing sponsored by Marina de Cascais and Mauri Pro Sailing had a great start at the VIII Regata Clube de Naval de Cascais in Portugal. An obstacle ran their way when they ripped the jib luff tape on the pre-start hoist. On the second tack, the jib sheet came undone resulting in more time lost. Even with these barriers, Team Giulietta Racing finished 2nd in real time behind a 65 foot Shipman 63, and placed 3rd on corrected time.
Congratulations to Alex and crew on a great result this past weekend! Mauri Pro Sailing is proud to be a sponsor for Team Giulietta Racing and is looking forward to their future events.
