VELA / ELBA: ELBABLE AND RUFFILLI TROPHY AT CVMM
Marciana Marina, 19 October 2022 – The mid-October weekend saw great activity at the Circolo della Vela Marciana Marina: the 2022 edition of Elbable and the Ruffilli Trophy social regatta took place.
Fourteen boats at the start for Elbable, the “palindromic” regatta that provided for the circumnavigation of the island both clockwise and anti-clockwise: unfortunately last Friday the weather and sea conditions, characterized by very light winds, did not allow us to complete the routes as per regulation (with regret the spirit of Elbable has been lost this year) and therefore two buoys have been positioned 10 nautical miles away from the start, which took place as always in the stretch of water in front of the town of Elba, one on the right Capo della Vita and the other on the left to Punta Nera.

Following the organization’s dinghies along the two routes, almost all the boats found themselves facing large patches of complete calm and, rarely, some gust of wind from the South South East. complete. Slightly more favorable is the condition of the right choice where, however, large areas of total “flat” occurred (especially close to the channel Portoferraio / Capo della vita) Few boats completed the 20-mile courses: only three competitors managed to finish the race with the finish in Marciana Marina .
