Rolex Giraglia 2018 - Energy Storm
Fast report before go to sleep, and drive back to shoot the beautiful wood (D-3 TUIGA and also D-1 Mariska).
Condition near perfect, some delay to have the wind stable, and on both field great energy, late noon even too much with a big cluster of heavy thunderstorm with lighting over the inside shore on the northerly part, but luckily it didn’t heat the bay, that has brought strong wind on the golfe and has push the committee to close fast the big boat field and the rest to sail/fly down to arrival sometime over 60° of bank (into big boat field to understand the Swan50 Cuor di Leon has the upwind rudder totally out of the water…).
Before go home a hug to the friend Rossella Losito (crew of Atalanta 2 ITA-204) who also is trying to prepare a solo adventure and with her, walking back to the press office, I met another great Champion: Xavier Rohart just back from sailing time. It’s always nice to meet friends after the water...
