No wind at Youth Foiling Gold Cup

Published on March 5th, 2021

Gaeta, Italy (March 5, 2021) – The third day of qualifying at the inaugural Liberty Bitcoin Youth Foiling Gold Cup failed to deliver sufficient winds for racing. While the Persico 69F is a very flexible foiling platform, able to foil in just 7 knots of wind and can still race in displacement mode, the mighty foiler was defeated today by a complete absence of wind.

“We tried our best, we went out looking for the wind, but it was hopeless, so we cancelled for the day,”
said Dede De Luca, Chief Sailing Officer.

Qualifying continues to March 8 after which the top six teams advance to the Finals on March 10-12.

1. Team Dutch Sail – NED, 33 points
2. Young Azzurra – ITA, 28.5

5. Southern Challenge – USA, 18.5
