Trofeo Challenge Roberto Trombini

Dean Barker (team New Zealand) and Magnus Holmberg (Victory Challenge, Sweden) are the finalists of Trombini Trophy grade 1 ISAF match race event 2001. It was another big day with perfect conditions and 10-15 knots of wind.

Barker beat 3-0 in the semifinal Peter Holmberg, more of a battle between Spithill and Magnus Holmberg, with five races. After a 2-2 the final race was spectacular and exciting: with the umpires that distribuited 4 penalties (3 of wich to Spithill, at last retired).

In the morning, was surprising also the victory 3-2 of Magnus Holmberg on Russull Coutts, due the ex-kiwi leaded 0-2 after the yesterday races. In the losers series: after two flights Nicola Celon lead 2-0 on Morten Henriksen,
and Coutts 2-0 on Cian.
