Ravenna 2K

The final day of the 2K event run by Circle Velico Ravennate saw the fleet afloat with reefed sails and a big breeze. The finalists looked to be already decided, but no one was letting things rest. In 2 brilliant races Serpentine and Bavaria hammered home wins against the Dutch, while CRV hit hard to take a valuable win against YCCS. But by 1400 the leading two teams were YCCS and DMTRA.

Race 1 of the finals sees YCCS scoring an "own goal" on the finish to hand the first point to DMTRA. Race 2 and in devastatingly aggressive team racing from the start. YCCS take the win.Now it is 1 each. 

DMTRA look to have the match in the bag, then some costly mistakes and with the balance of umpire calls going in their favour YCCS are suddenly in a 1-2. Despite brilliant off wind speed the Dutch throwing everything into it simply can not catch the Italians who win the event 2:1

An impressive display by the young CRV team from Ravenna places them in third.
