More tricky conditions

It was another testing day for the crews competing at the St. Moritz Match Race, due to the light and shifty winds. On day two of this “Alpine” event, Team Azzurra was able to master two victories, against Frenchman Bertrand Pace and Jérôme Clerc from Switzerland, but lost to the other Frenchman Damien Iehl.

Happier than yesterday, Francesco Bruni commented: “Today was a very positive one for us, although extremely challenging. Unfortunately we made a couple of unnecessary mistakes against Iehl. We need to focus in order to win two matches tomorrow and advance to the Quarter Finals. Fingers crossed.”

Team Azzurra is in eighth with four wins and four losses. The first ranked team at the end of the Round Robin will go directly to the Semifinals, while second through seventh will conquer a spot in the Quarter Finals.
