EUROSAF Match Racing, Open European Championship 2023: still open for registrationOctober 16, 2023
The 2023 Nastro Rosa EUROSAF Female Offshore European Championship was sailed on Figaro3 boats, double female crew and without on-water assistance from start to finish. The championship started from Venice, first to Montenegro, then to Taranto, with a classification that rewarded the best on the basis of overall times.
By also winning the leg that took the fleet from Montenegro to Taranto, Ellie Driver and Catherine Hunt won the EUROSAF Female Offshore European Championship, an event organized by Difesa Servizi S.p.A. and SSI Events, with the support of the Marina Militare and EUROSAF and the collaboration of the Lega Navale Italiana Taranto, Marina di Molo Sant’Eligio and the Portomontenegro Yacht Club. The two British sailors, representing the colors of Team Chili Pepper, demonstrated great familiarity with the Beneteau Figaro 3, the star boat of the event, always sailing fast and in phase with the wind.
A roadmap that left no room for their opponents, led by Team OHalloran-Stevens (Roisin O’Halloran-Connie Stevens), second on the finish line in both Montenegro and Taranto, and by the Germans of Team Vamos (Florencia Lazzari-Helena Schneider), finished five points behind the new European champions. The ranking was then completed by Team AskewHill, Team Solot, Team Quadriga, Team Caccia and Team M&M.
