Valencia- Huge success for the second edition of the Dinghy Academy Finn Trophy. 29 Finns from 14 countries entered the event hosted by Luca Devoti’s Dinghy Academy in a warm and beautiful Valencia. Two races were sailed today in a light 5-6 knots easterly, shifting to south-east and dying to 5-4 knots during the second race,  that the RC (Luca Devoti, Michele Tognozzi and Alejandro Foglia) managed to complete shortening the final run.

Italian Michele Paoletti leads the standings after two races with a 7-1, but the top four boats are separated by only 1 point with Dinghy Academy’s guys Zsombor Berecz (HUN), Milan Vujasinovic (CRO) and Facundo Olezza (ARG) also in shape. Race 1 went to russian Aleksey Borisov.

Tomorrow three more races will be sailed with more fun and a big “asado” scheduled for the night. Warning Signal will be scheduled at 12:00. Here the results after 2 races…
