IRC - Giraglia Cup - St. Tropez FRA - Day 1, the Swiss
The Giraglia Cup 2012 began yesterday at St-Tropez FRA with short around-the-buoys races and more to come until Tuesday, before the start to the famous 242 miles Giraglia Race from St-Tropez around the Giraglia Rock (North of Corsica) to San Remo ITA will be given. The over 100 yachts are sailing in two fleets. After two races, the Russian Swan 60 'Bronenosec' of M. Alpenberg RUS leads in the IRC-0-category, the largest yachts, followed by 'Itacentodue' of Adriano Calvini ITA and 'Jethou' of Peter Ogden GBR. Best of the day in the IRC-A-rankings is Noel Franck SUI with his TP52 'Near Miss'. As non-starter at the prologue, he is only 14th overall for the time being. Jean-Jacques Chaubard SUI follows on the 19th position. René Estoppey SUI is 40th. All ranking lists and the report.
