Alpe Adria Sailing Tour 2003
Sibenik

'BMW Tomic', driven by Peter HOLMBERG (USA), conquered the 7.4 mile race from Sibenik to Split in only 53'40'. Since the start of the event it is the third victory for HOLMBERG, who sailed with Oracle/BMW at the last America's Cup.

It was a really great race to watch and the final result was balanced on a thin line until the very end when 'BMW Tomic' surpassed 'Alcatel' who lead for the entire race.

Third place for the Croatian 'Scor Team' (2'47') driven by Darko HAJDINJAK, who preceeded 'Barcolana' by only 6 seconds. In fifth place was 'Magic Sailing Team' (3'22'), sixth place went to 'City of Aquileia' (3'30') and seventh place to 'Clementei' (3'46').

Finally the sailors got to sail with great and constant weather conditions, with wind up to 18 knots, which strongly favoured the event for the many lovers of the sport who admired from land.

A great start for the boat 'Region Friuli Venezia Giulia', which arrived fifth at the first mark, but unfortunately got stuck in a set of problems and slowly lost their placing, and eventually arrived twelfth, just after the courageous girls of 'Val Nautika', who also had no luck in this regatta.

In the overall results, 'City of Split' is still leading the fleet with 63h31'46', followed by 'BMW Tomic' just 17'13', closing in on the leader. Third place overall for 'Barcolana' who are far away from the main leaders by (1h10'51') and are now driven by Alessandro BONIFACCIO, who took over for Nevio SABADIN.
