Sailing: Tita-Banti also at Kieler Woche.  Third victory after Tokyo

The Olympic gold medals put the third victory in a row after the Games. Blue triumph in Germany

Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti once again confirm themselves as the best specialists in the world of Nacra 17 (the Olympic multihull). In Germany the two Azzurri also won the Kieler Woche (legendary regatta now in its 139th edition), one of the races reserved for the most numerous and prestigious Olympic classes on the international scene, a success with 9 points ahead of bitter English rivals Gimson Burnet, medal silver medal at the Tokyo Games. After the Olympic gold, the two Azzurri won the Princesa Sofia Trophy in Palma and the Hyeres Semaine in France, confirming themselves as the crew to beat, also with the new modifications introduced this year in the class.

How much Italy

But to celebrate the results obtained this week on the Baltic Sea is the whole Italian team of the flying catamaran thanks to the third place of Vittorio Bissaro and Maelle Frascari and the fifth of Gianluigi Ugolini and Maria Giubilei. A success that demonstrates the excellent work done by the athletes and by the coach Gabriele Bruni, who was in turn Olympic twenty years ago with his brother Francesco. “I come home satisfied with my team – declared Bruni radiant, for everyone in the world of sailing only Ganga – this is the demonstration that work pays off. Our secret? Certainly the training we did this winter in Cagliari made us allowed to understand how to make the most of the new rudder system that has proved fundamental. But I believe that our real strength is the team. We are a united group and we work well together. Foreigners tend to focus on a single crew, what they believe is the strongest, while we work as a team and I must say that this choice is the right one “.
