Sucari & Renna won by one from Verdino & Sanchez
Really exciting sailing at the Semana de Mar del Plata 2008 by the look of the awesome photos from Matias Capizzano of www.capizzano.com. Many of us will remember Francisco Sucari & Francisco Renna and Bruno Verdino & Tirso Sanchez Brizuela at the Europeans in Istanbul. Their competition continued through the seventeen races last week on the seas of the Puerto de Mar del Plata in Argentina. Looks like they are shaping up for another competitive year in 2008, with the South American Championship coming up and then the Worlds in Athens. Although these two teams evidently revelled in the very demanding conditions last week, it is really pleasing to see all the sailors who competed (well, at least the spray they made anyway!) in Matias Capizzano’s photos, many of which appear in our latest Photo Gallery.
