12.06.2018

Another racing day of Giraglia Rolex Cup began under the finest weather conditions: stable wind up to 20 knots, still water and clear sky. Arctic Energy had a great final in-shore race. The crew had a perfect start demonstrating seamless cooperation between the crew members.

“Today we managed to achieve the highest speed – 18 knots. Considering the maneuvering technique, the crew is well trained, which means that the preliminary training stage was fruitful” – said the captain of Arctic Energy, Valentine Zubkov. 

The Russian crew traversed confidently and had an intense struggle at full speed against its main competitor, the Italian team, which was literally “at the tail” of Arctic Energy during the whole race, but could not overtake it. This resulted in a decent finish, with the Russian team in the middle of the total score table.

Today the yachts are starting a long race in the open sea 243 nautical miles long. Its route lies via the rocky island of Giralia north of Corsica and finishes in Genoa.

Good luck to our team! Go Arctic Energy!
