Four days of light and medium intensity wind and summer weather were the scene of the last event of the coveted TF35 Trophy circuit, allowing the dispute of 9 races for the TF35 Scarlino.
The Gulf of Follonica has provided breezes from the south-western quadrants between 5 and 14 knots, thus permitting the possibility for the 6 racing teams to face each other in different conditions. At the end of the 9 races the victory went to the Swiss Realteam for Lémah hope, followed by compatriot Spindrift and Alinghi Red Bull Racing.

At the start of the event, the leadership of the circuit (started in May and composed by six regattas, four Swiss and two Italian) belonged to the Swiss Alinghi Red Bull Racing, pressed for only two points by compatriot Realteam for Léman hope. Alinghi, with the advantage held, had already secured the victory, therefore the TF35 SCARLINO event victory of the direct opponent was little worth it, who could only consolidate the second position. On the lowest step of the podium the Spindrift team.

It is only an arrivederci, as the spectacular class has announced its intention to return again to the Marina di Scarlino in spring 2023. Thanks and satisfaction, in fact, have been expressed by Ernesto Bertarelli on the occasion of the award ceremony, together with an applause for the reception of the Marina and the professionalism of all collaborators.

The TF35 can grant an early take-off speed, guarantees foiling upwind and downwind and a fully automatic flight control system, using the latest in foiling technology, both to improve performance and simplify high-speed foiling while making it easier to race.
This was easily visible during racing days 1 and 2, where the breeze was very light, and the boats could anyhow fly on the water.
