Régates Royales de Cannes - Ivan Bradbury victory in Dragons

Day 4 of the Régates Royales de Cannes – Trophée Panerai and the Classics benefitted from a light wind to complete a race on a triangular course.

With Cambria and Mariska duelling for the leadership, the latter won yet another race in corrected time.

Olympian, totally at ease in light airs, succeeded in leaving behind his nearly sistership Chips, skippered by Bruno Troublé.

Likewise Brendan Mc Carty's NY-40 Rowdy and Q Class Leonore skippered by Italian Mauro Piani crossed in first and second respectively.

Argentinean Daniel Sielecki’s Cippino only managed to finish in eighth place Friday, losing several points in the overall.

These three boats will have the last say Saturday for overall victory in the regatta.

Among the smaller Marconi class, world-famous yacht designer German Frers, helming Fjord III, the boat designed by his father in 1947, scored a first and is now separated by just point from Angelo Mozzarella’s Carron II.

Today’s slightly stronger air also favoured the One Tonner Ganbare skippered by Don Wood, with Italy’s Maxi Il Moro di Venezia owned by Massimiliano Ferruzzi closing in second.

In the Tofinou class France’s Patrice Riboud on Pitch snatched victory from England’s Edward Fort on Pippa.

Friday was the day of racing day for the 44-boats strong Dragon fleet, that closed the event in style.
