One week after the conclusion of the regatta, the thrill of an amazing Rolex Fastnet Race is still felt.

Allagrande by Beccaria and Influence2 by Andrea Fornaro – respectively boat 1# and 2# for Sangiorgio Marine – thus finished with a third place for Fornaro and a seventh for Beccaria, who suffered a two-hour penalty after an early start (OCS) .
Italians are also the skipper of IBSA, Alberto Bona, and Pietro Luciani, embarked on the second classified flying the French flag, Dékuple. Edo Bianchi, embarked on Influence2, commented the regatta thus, “between the adrenaline and the emotion of seeing two “my” boats fighting for the first places, I was finally able to test the performance of a boat that leaves me breathless: fast, solid, reliable… a rocket!”.
And now we wait for the Jacques Vabre…
