Swan Cup 2000 - Bvlgari Race Day

More races around the buoys in more perfect weather

Thursday August 31st 2000, Author: Sian Cowen, Location: United Kingdom
After two days of coastal racing, the race committee threw a new one at the fleet in the 2000 Swan Cup. It was a windward /leeward track, but under the same blazing skies.
Maligaya earned line honours in the first race. She was followed home by Alalunga and Solleone - the new Swan 82RS. In the second race, the breeze was up near 20 knots. Again the big boats led the way across the line, with Maligaya, Alalunga and series co-leader Sotto Voce filling the top three positions. Defiance was sharing first place overall with Sotto Voce at the start of the day, and is looking good again on handicap. But Noonmark VI has a protest lodged against Defiance - and that could have a big impact on the top of the overall standings.

Overall Leader (provisional)
1 Defiance - 4 pts
2 Sotto Voce - 7pts
3 Noonmark VI - 11pts
4 Desperado - 18.5pts
5 Island Fling - 19.5pts
6 Loki - 23.5pts
7 Eurosia - 30.5pts
8 Assuage - 33.5pts
9 Trumpeter ot the Rock - 38pts
10 White Lie - 42.5pts
