The Tre Golfi Sailing Week continues with Rolex as Official Timepiece
In the magical atmosphere of the stretch of water between Sorrento and Capri, the 25 Maxis taking part in the first ever European Championship for the class are waiting for the breeze to fill in. A westerly wind of 10 to 12 knots is forecast for today.
At the end of the race the staff of the Association Cuochi coordinated by Caritas will be tasked with organising the "pasta party". Accompany the dishes is water provided by Ferrarelle, a supplier partner of the event and beer N'artigiana, produced entirely in Naples. All of which takes place against the beautiful Marina Piccola di Sorrento, the home of the Maxis for this week, where you can also purchase the official merchandising of the Tre Golfi from the Jaked stand, a supplier partner of the regatta. The ORC, moored in Piano and Sant'Agnello, are getting ready to start their competition tomorrow. Update at 3:30 pm on 18/05/2022.
On the Official Notice Board (ONB) of the event the results of the 67th Regata dei Tre Golfi. It should be noted that, contrary to what was communicated, the first boat to cross the finish line was the Maxi ARCA SGR, owned by Furio Benussi, ahead of Giovanni Soldini's Maserati in second. The prize-giving ceremony will be held this evening, at 6:30 p.m., in Marina Grande di Sorrento, hosted by the Antico Cantiere Del Legno Aprea, which will offer refreshments based on typical local products. A wonderful opportunity to visit this historic fishing village.

A photo gallery of the wonderful evening in Marina di Equa is online here. On Monday, owners and crews disembarked on the private pier of the Axidie hotel, accompanied by the golden light of the setting sun, where they were welcomed by owner Antonio Savarese and 10 Michelin-starred chefs, who each prepared a particular speciality. Guests were treated to a rich selection of Ferrari Trentodoc wines by F.lli Lunelli, supplier partner of the regatta.
The trimaran Maserati, first in class at the Tre Golfi Regatta, was also moored in Marina di Equa. Giovanni Soldini recounted the race together with the crew of the other trimaran taking part, Riccardo Pavoncelli's Mana, who after having led for the entire race was overtaken in the last few miles by his direct rival.
Interesting fact: the Maserati trimaran uses a desalinator by Schenker, technical partner of the Tre Golfi Sailing Week.
