VELA: CONCLUSA LA ONE TON CUP, CAMPIONATO DEL MONDO IC45
TOMMASO CHIEFFI E VASCO VASCOTTO SONO SESTI

Si Ŕ conclusa a Marsiglia la One Ton Cup Campionato del Mondo della classe
monotipo IC45, l'imbarcazione che il prossimo anno sarÓ utilizzata come Big
Boat alla Champagne Mumm Admirals Cup.
Anche la giornata conclusiva della manifestazione organizzata dalla SocietÚ
Nautique de Marseille e che mette in palio una preziosissima coppa
d'argento del peso di 10 chili ( vinta pi¨ volte nel corso degli anni da
imbarcazioni italiane: "Ydra" nel 1973, "Filodatorcere" nel 1980, "Linda"
nel 1983 "Brava" nel 1989 e "Brava Q8 nel 1992).
L'imbarcazione inglese "Babbalaas" timonata da Tommaso Chieffi che in
questa occasione Ŕ in equipaggio con il triestino Vasco Vascotto nel ruolo
di tattico ha riportato la sesta posizione in classifica generale.
"E' stato un campionato molto combattuto - ha dichiarato Tommaso Chieffi a
fine regata - e questo fa ben sperare per la prosima Admiral's Cup visto
che queste imbarcazioni offrono sicuramente una grande possibilitÓ di
competizioni ad altissimo livello". Tommaso Chieffi sarÓ di nuovo sui campi
di regata la prossima settimana nella Maxi Rolex Cup come tattico di
"Pyewacket", l'imbarcazione di Roy Disney; Vasco Vascooto sarÓ invece
imbarcato a bordo, sempre nel ruolo di tattico a bordo di "Tiketitan" di
Luca Bassani.
La vittoria e quindi il titolo iridato Ŕ andata all'equipaggio francese di
"Cavale Bleu" timonato da Thierry Peponnet che sarÓ anch'egli in regata a
Porto Cervo nella Maxi Rolex Cup alla ruota dell'imbarcazione "Viruelle".

PRESS RELEASE

THIRD DAY OF ONE TON CUP, IC45 (EX COREL 45) WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN
MARSEILLE (FRANCE)-1st September 2000

After the third day of races of the One Ton Cup/IC45 World Championship
once again the overall results changed: after the discussion of protests
lodeged, "Atalanti X" (late in the evening) was not anymore the leader due
to the disqualification in the first race of the day (7th) and French
"Cavale Bleu" could take the lead. So the last day where some more two
races were scheduled seemed that should have been  a very hot day.
On last day of one of the smartest sailing international event weather
conditions has been still demanding with the mistral blowing over sail area
of the South bay of Marseille up to 25 knots, with gusts up to 30/35 knots.
The Swedish "Investor" helmed by his owner Thomas Blixt is the fastest
across the starting line of the first race. The yachts chosing the right
side of the area are ahead of the fleet and "Cavale Bleu" in the first one
to round the first windward mark. Other yachts, "Atalanti X", "Faster
K-Yote II" and "Serono" that decided to sail the left side are a little bit
backwards. In the second windward leg "Cavale Bleu" once again choose the
right side but it is not the the right choice as she is fourth at mark
rounding. At the end of the second running leg British "Indulgence" helmed
by Adrian Stead takes the lead and then can be the first one to cross the
finishing line. In the last leg "Cavale Bleu" has her spinnaker blown out
and looses her position crossing the finishing line on 6th position. "La
Casera" helmed by American Chris Larson is second rignt in front of
"Atalanti X". Looking at red flags displayed during the first and
penultimate race it seems that many protests are going to be lodged.
Immediately the last  race is fired, the wind is bulding up more and more.
"Serono" and "Cavale Bleu" are the fastest at start . "Indulgence" is
always in the right place and at the end takes the lead and wins the second
race of the day. A perfect way to finish the championship. Meanwhile there
is a close fight among the other yachts of the fleet: "Cavale Bleu" keeps
her second position until the finishing not allowing any other yachts to
overcome her. At the second windward mark rounding  "Faster K-Yote II" is
following "Serono" and "Atalanti X", but on next windward leg while sailing
a little more offshore looking for a best wind she can round the mark in
front of these yachts. On the last downwind leg "Serono" and "Atalanti X"
can once again overcome "Faster K-Yote II" and the Greek boat  is   third to
cross the finishing line.
At the end of the 11 race series the French "Cavale Bleu" owned by Michel
Duquenne with Thierry Peponnet (one gold and one bronze Olympic medals in
his palmares in 470 class) helming and Luc Gelluseau (manager of French
America's Cup Challenge in Auckland) calling tactics is the 2000 IC45 World
Champion. Luc Gellusseau wins twice the One Ton Cup - sailed with the one
design boat IC45 (ex Corel 45) chosen to be the Big Boat in the next
Champagne Mumm Admiral's Cup - as last year he was on board "Fater K-Yote
II" that won in Spain. The overall results is very interesting as the most
part of the team included non-professional sailors scuhe the owner's son
and som friends.
Secon in the overall results is "Atalanti X" owned by Greek George
Andreadis and third is "Indulgence" owned by British Graham Walker.
The 2000 One Ton Cup/IC45 World Championship "The Millennium Regatta" has
been organized by SociÚtÚ Nautique de Marseille and managed by K-Yachting
International.
The One Ton Cup is owned by the Cercle de la Voile de Paris and it was
awarded for the first time in 1899: it is a 10 kms solid silver trophy
designed by Linzener in Paris in the Art Nouveau style.

NELLA SECONDA GIORNATA DELLA ONE TON CUP, CAMPIONATO DEL MONDO IC45 (EX COREL 45), TOMMASO CHIEFFI E VASCO VASCOTTO MANTENGONO IL SESTO POSTO DOPO QUATTRO PROVE

Nella terza giornata della One Ton Cup Campionato del Mondo della classe monotipo IC45 in corso a Marsiglia sono state disputate altre quattro prove su percorso a bastone in condizioni ideali con vento teso di mistral a oltre 20 nodi.
L'imbarcazione inglese "Babbalaas" timonata da Tommaso Chieffi che in questa occasione Ŕ in equipaggio con il triestino Vasco Vascotto nel ruolo di tattico ha disputato le regate sempre nelle prime posizioni e con i risultati parziali 8-4-3-2 mantiene il sesto posto della classifica generale , ma con un esiguo distacco nel punteggio rispetto alle imbarcazioni che lo precedono. Se sarannosiputate anche le due prove in programma sarÓ possibile scartare i due peggiori risultati e perci˛ il timoniere carrararino e il tattico triestino avranno sicuramente la possibilitÓ di migliorare ulteriormente la loro posizione. Leader della classifica a questo punto Ŕ "l'imbarcazione greca "Atalanti X" timonata dal timoniere americano di Coppa America Kean Read (tal timone a Auckland del "Team Dennis Conner", seguito dal francese Cavale Bleu e dallo svizzero "Serono" di Ernesto Bertarelli l'armatore svizzero che ha lanciato la prima sfida elvetica alla Coppa America.
Domani, condizioni meteo permettendo, la conclusione della manifestazione con l'assegnazione del titolo iridato.

PRESS RELEASE
THIRD DAY OF ONE TON CUP, IC45 (EX COREL 45) WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IN
MARSEILLE (FRANCE)-31st August 2000
Eventually the mistral start to blow on the sailplan of Marseille (South Bay) where a fleet of 12 yachts is taking part in the One Ton Cup, the World Championship of the IC45 one design class. On the third day of racing some more 4 races could be sailed on windward/leeward courses and the figh is gettting more and more close especially among the first five yachts of the overall results.
After the first two days (5 races sailed) the leader of the fleet was not anymore the red yacht of German Ortwin Kandler "Faster K-Yote II"  due to a disqualification in the fourth race (she was protested by "Serono" bacause of a too close tack)  and and OCS in the fifth so at the end of the day the leader was "Cavale bleu" followed by "Atalanti X".
In the typical weather conditions of Marseille (blue sky and wind up to 20/25 knots) the first race was fired in time at 11.00 hrs:"Atalanti X" the IC45 helmed by American Ken Read (he has been the helmsman of "Team Dennis Conner" at last America's Cup) could be the fastest across the line at gun deciding to sail the left side of the sail plan. That choice proved to be the right on as the Greek could lead the fleet along since the start to the finishing line where the Greek yacht was followed by "Faster K-Yote II" and
"Cavale bleu".
On second race British "Indulgence" missed only for few meters the first place: after a very good start of skipper Adrian Stead could keep the lead all the race long and only just before the finishing line "Atalanti X"
could ovecome him and win anothe race. Third one to cross the finishing line was "Cavale bleu".
Once again "Atalanti X" in the best one to cross the staring line but
immediately it becomes clear that the "match race" shauld have been between "Cavale bleu" and "Faster K-Yote II": they go on all the racing long with very close tacks. At last windward mark rounding "Atalanti X" has to make a 360░ penalty turn after a crossing with Welsh "Babbalaas" skippered by Italian Tommaso Chieffi and Swiss "Serono" takes advantage of the situation
and wins the race.
On third race "Cavale Bleu" had and injured member of the crew that had to be taken off so they had some problems and an individual recall that made them late across the finishing line (10th) losing in theis way the leadership in the overall results. "Serono" finishes the race with her second victory in the same day followed in few seconds by  "Babbalaas" and "Atalanti X" that is now the leader of the results. If some more two races
will be sailed tomorrow as scheduled the yachts will have the chance to discard the two worst results so at least the first four yachts ov the overall results could have the chance to win the championship.

PRIMA GIORNATA DELLA ONE TON CUP, CAMPIONATO DEL MONDO IC45, TOMMASO CHIEFFI E VASCO VASCOTTO AL QUARTO POSTO NELLA PRIMA REGATA

E' iniziata con una giornata di pioggia e vento molto irregolare l'edizione 2000 della One Ton Cup Campionato del Mondo della classe monotipo IC45 sul campo di regata di Marsiglia.
Solo una delle tre prove previste su percorso a bastone Ŕ stata disputata: la regata Ŕ stata vinta dal campione iridato uscente "Faster K-Yote II" mentre l'imbarcazione inglese "Babaalaas"timonata da Tommaso Chieffi (alla tattica Vasco Vascotto) ha concluso al quarto posto. Con il risultato odierno la coppia composta da Tommaso Chieffi e Vasco
Vascotto si Ŕ dimostrata ancora una volta fra i migliori velisti alivello
internazionale all'altezza di competere con velisti come Jochen SchŘmann (al timone della barca greca "Atalanti X) che parteciperÓ alle Olimpiadi di Sydney nella classe Soling e giÓ vincitore di medaglia d'oro olimpica, del francese Thierry Peponnet, tattico della barca francese alla Coppa America 2000, degli americani Ken Read e Chris Larson, anch'essi ben noti in Coppa America, o Robbie Haines che nel suo palmares pu˛ vantare anch'egli un oro
olimpico e dell'inglese Adrian Stead recente vincitore del Giro di Francia a Vela con i Mumm 30, classe in cui i due velisti italiani le scorsa settimana hanno riportato il primo e secondo posto nel Campionato europeo.
In equipaggio con Chieffi e Vascotto anche il prodiere veneziano Alberto Barovier, mentre fa parte dell'equipaggio di un'altra imbarcazione inglese, "Yet another Coup", il bolognese Vittorio VolontŔ, altro velista italiano ben noto a livello internazionale.
Domani, condizioni meteo permettendo (Ŕ previsto sole e mistral)  il
programma prevede lo svolgimento di altre tre prove a partire dalle ore 11.00.

PRESS RELEASE
SHIFTY LIGHT WINDS ON FIRST DAY OF ONE TON CUP, IC45 (EX COREL 45) WORLD
CHAMPIONSHIP IN MARSEILLE (FRANCE)
Rain and shifty winds on first day of One Ton Cup, IC45 (ex Corel 45) World Championship that started today in Marseille (France) with the organization of SociÚtÚ Nautique de Marseille: as a matter of fact one out of the three scheduled races could be sailed on windward-leeward courses in the South bay of Marseille.
At scheduled time, 11.00 hrs. race committee had to postpone the start due to a complete lack of wind under the rain: at about 2.30 hrs the first start was fired but after the first mark rounding (first one to round the mark was "Faster K-Yote II" followed by Swiss "Serono") while the fleet was sailing the first donwind leg the race had to be abandoned because of a 90░ windshift. Finally the race committe could fire a new race in an Easterly wind up to 8 knots. German defending champion "Faster K-Yote II" took the lead since the start and sailed in front of the 12 boats fleet until the finishing line. The second one to cross the finishing line was the Swiss "Serono" that sailed a true match race with the German red hull, followed by French "Magician". The race committee starded a second race at about 17.30, but it had to be abandoned just before the first mark rounding as the wind dropped completely.
Tomorrow some more three races (weather permitting, sun and mistral have been forecast) are scheduled starting from 11.00 hrs.
