Robertissima claims honours in Rolex Capri Sailing Week's Volcano Race

Events

Roberto Tomasini Grinover's JV72 Mini Maxi Robertissima has been declared the winner on corrected time (IRC) of Rolex Capri Sailing Week's Volcano Race.

Tricky conditions on the course yesterday during the return journey from Stromboli back to Capri caused this year's race to favour the frontrunners with line honours winner, Igor Simcic's 30.5 metre Esimit Europa 2 finishing second, with Jethou, Sir Peter Ogden's all-black sistership to Robertissima, third.

The majority of the competitors ended up spending a second night at sea, only reaching Capri's Marina Grande early the next morning.

The 21st May saw another two windward-leeward races held at the Barclays 52 Super Series and another two winners. American Jim Swartz's Vesper claimed the first and local favourite, Azzurra, the second.
