GC32 Riva Cup has finally started, with tough conditions

12 May 2017    GC32  

The race committee wasn’t able to do any race yesterday, for the first day of the GC32 Riva Cup. The wind didn’t show up. Today, Friday May 12, the event was finally launched !

Team Tilt is sailing here with a 100% Red Bull Youth America’s Cup. 7 swiss sailors under 24 are sailing this week. Today, Sébastien (at the helm), sailed with Jérémy, Nils, Guillaume and Florian. Jocelyn and Arthur were on the ribs.

Four races were sailed in tricky conditions, not the usual Lake Garda wind ! « It was a tough beginning of the event, the wind was tricky », explains coach Pietro Sibello. « We had some good starts, good manoeuvers, but we had some problems reading the race course and the wind changes. We also had a small crash with Malizia, we’ll work hard to prepare everything tonight and be better tomorrow! »

Team Tilt has the chance to sail against to other RBYAC teams this week, Team France Jeune (6th) and Team BDA (9th).
