The first regatta of the 2014 season, started with a great success for the Esimit Sailing Team, which took line honours at the 230 nautical miles long Volcano race. With a speed up to 18 knots the Esimit Europa 2 yacht reached the volcano of Stromboli at 9 pm (19th May 2014) and continued with the same speed during the night. In the morning of 20th May, the winds dropped and therefore, Esimit Europa 2 reached the finish line at 13.16 CEST after a little bit more than 27 hours of sailing.
Congratulations to the whole team for achieving the 29th consecutive line honours at the first offshore race of the Rolex Capri Sailing Week, which was marked with changeable weather conditions and at the moments very low winds.
Take a look at the team’s impressions about this spectacular inshore race, which this year saw very tricky conditions. This time we prepared for you a multilingual report.
The Rolex Capri Sailing Week will continue for the Esimit Sailing Team with another 3 inshore races, which will be held between the 22nd and 24th May 2014.
