COMANCHE RAIDER 3 LEADS THE WAY

The Ragusa Regatta got underway with a fast start from Marsamxett  Harbour, with Ramon Sant Hill’s Comanche Raider 3 leading the fleet and Jonathan Camilleri Bowman’s Maltese Falcon II in hot pursuit close behind.

Unfortunately, as the day progressed very light conditions prevailed resulting in only Comanche Raider 3 making it to the finish within the stipulated time limit. The rest of the fleet retired and made the passage to Marina di Ragusa under motor. 

The next morning, Maltese crews were invited to take part in the 7th Trofeo Achille Boroli and the 5th  Hyblea Cup,   organised by the Circoli Velici Iblei.

Once again light conditions prevailed meaning that racing consisted of one short race on Saturday and two races on Sunday morning.

The Trofeo Achille Boroli was brought home to Malta thanks to the efforts of Ramon Sant Hill and his crew on Comanche Raider 3.  The Hyblea Cup saw Robert Ciantar and his Nauti Buoy crew take second place whilst Club Commodore Godwin Zammit and his Inspiration crew took third place. 

The Race down from Ragusa to Malta, saw a start in light conditions near Ragusa. Comanche Raider 3 led the way throughout and crossed the finish line in Marsamxett  well ahead of the remaining boats. 

Maltese Falcon II was second to cross the line followed by Inspiration, however it was Inspiration that clinched second place on corrected time.
