  • The Improbable Win Of A SF Classic

    The Improbable Win Of A SF Classic

    The Ups And Downs Of Lake Garda Foil GC 32 Riva Cup

    Tentative early lead for Zoulou at the GC32 Riva Cup




    Lake Garda was playing awkward for today’s opening rounds of the GC32 Riva Cup, first event of the 2022 GC32 Racing Tour. To the south of Riva del Garda, the racing was delayed only slightly but this allowed the lake’s southerly Ora wind to build to 16-18 knots. Reaching starts in this amount of wind enabled the nimble one design foiling catamarans to set off across the start line and converge on the

    Fast And Furious At Vice Admirals Cup

    Fast, furious and exceptionally close racing at the RORC Vice Admiral’s Cup




    A stunning opening day delivered three fast-paced and testing races for every class. After a short wait for the wind to fill in, it quickly built to a solid west-southwesterly of 12-14 knots.

    The breeze then rose further, with gusts into the mid 20s, accompanied by plenty of excitement as downwind boat speeds topped 20 knots for some.

    The smaller boats in the HP30...

  • A Big Breeze Conclusion In Lagos
    by Photoboy


    The GC32 Lagos Cup, the pre-Worlds for next month’s GC32 World Championship, concluded in big breeze. Despite the flying catamaran fleet heading out an hour early, by the end of the first race, the sea state was still relatively flat but with the wind averaging 22 knots and gusting to 27 it was ‘survival’ for some of the 10 teams, so PRO Stuart Childerley made the welcome decision to abandon racing.
