La Cinquecento 2017

Kurz-Zusammenfassung / short summary:

Das erste stabile Sommer-Hoch über der Adria. Grandioses Wetter – meistens wolkenlos -, aber (leider) wenig bis sehr wenig Wind. Die windärmste Cinquecento aller Zeiten. Von über 30 gestarteten Yachten schaffen es nur sechs innerhalb des Zeitlimits ins Ziel.

The first stable summer high of this season over the Adriatic. Brilliant weather – most of the time no cloud cover at all -, but very unfortunately light to very light winds. The most light wind Cinquecento in history. Of 30+ starting yachts only 6 arrive at the finish line in time.
