Rán Racing read the shifts and change in wind pressure better on the middle section of the run, holding to the La Madalenna side where they gained to get through Quantum Racing and Provezza.

On the finish line it was Rán Racing only just ahead of Quantum Racing who in turn were just a boat lenght ahead of Phoenix with Provezza fourth. The race truly lived up to Costa Smeralda’s reputation for delivering great, interesting conditions through the wonderful landscape.
