And then… Argentario Sailing week

Skylark has won the 1st race of Argentario Sailing Week by a staggering 5 minutes on Corrected Time leading the Q Class racing yacht Leonore helmed by Italian AC veteran Mauro Pellaschier.

Skylark started at the pin end of the line beneath Leonore and the two yachts lead the fleet into the shore by Porto Santo Stefano enjoying more breeze. Skylark dipped the elegant 12m Vanity at the top mark and three long reaches ensued, culminating in a spinnaker reach to the finish.

A fantastic week of racing followed where Skylark won her Class retaining two 1st places after discard – was presented the Class Winners Trophy – but due to an anomaly in the way the results are calculated, the Black Label Panerai watch was presented to Leonore.
