Under clear blue skies, with a westerly breeze, ranging from 12-20 Knots, three races were held on the beautiful Costa Smeralda.

The J/70 Armada left the safe confines of the YC Costa Smeralda apprehensive of what was to come.

The sight of 162 teams gathered on the race course was nothing short of spectacular, a gigantic festival of yacht racing.

The fleet would not return for over eight hours of intense competition, salt-encrusted and elated by the experience.
