Rolex IMS Offshore World Championship
Capri

On Wednesday evening, at 19.43 p.m., Alberto Roemmers’ Maxi Yacht “Alexia” arrived at the Capri finish line in first position for the Offshore Race: the second part of the Rolex IMS World Championship.
A few hours later, at night, all the others boats arrived, delayed because of the light wind. After corrected time for this race, final results after 4 races see Pasquale Landolfi's "Brava Q8" - member of Yacht Club Costa Smeralda - winning in "A" division, in front of Vincenzo Onorato's "Breeze" and Farr 40 "Fram XV", owned by H.M. King Harald V.

In division "B", three italian boats arrived - in the offshore race - in first, second and third position: "Sexy", "Capitani Coraggiosi" and "Jeckerson Seaqua". So, provisional results after four races see, for "B" division, the greek yacht "Okyalos XII" in the first position, "Team Revolution" in second place and, for the third position, "Don Alvaro".

Tomorrow, Friday 24th, the teams will race two windward-leeward regattas, 12 miles each, in front of Capri's Island. The wind is getting stronger, and the weather forecast predicts the wind will be about 15-20 knots.
