GABRIELE BRUNI (TECHNICAL NACRA 17)

“Today was a day not too good, I would say ugly for Roger and Catherine. They made bad choices especially in the first upwind. Instead Vittorio and Maelle have made a good first race, managing very well the first beat, which was difficult because the wind was down to earth and was entering the thermal breeze. Then they defended themselves enough in the third round, while the second remained a bit ‘stuck at the start. We are at the beginning, hold on, tomorrow is another day! ”
