Petticrow v Doomernik in Naples….

With winds from the southwest of 12-14kts and sunshine all day, it has been a “Battle Royal” between Petticrow Owner, Tim Tavinor in “Tiger” GBR 774 , and Joop Doomernik in “Apollo” NED 410. Both are now sitting pretty on three wins a piece after 6 races, so the Championship is all on tomorrow’s last day and final race….

In 1960 the Olympics were held in these very waters with building sea breeze’s and sun burnt faces, arms and neck’s…  Yes Campers, it’s so easy to let slip your guard when the wind blows across your skin to keep you cool…. Maximum protection is essential even though the local Fishermen are out in their traditional small boats, from sun-up…

Naples is one of the oldest inhabitited cities in the world, with Greek settlements dating back to the 9th century. The tourism is second to none as vistors flock to see so many historical buildings of interest. With the ever incresing Italian Dragon Fleet, who knows how many boats will make the trip next year…

Higher, Faster, Longer….   Stavros.  (Ned 410).
