Swan Sardina Challenge 2022
Four days of intense racing in the spectacular setting of southeast Sardinia came to a conclusion with the final places decided at the Swan Sardinia Challenge. The crystal-clear waters off Villasimius were witness to ten hard fought and ultra-competitive races, with fortunes across the three one-design classes varying rapidly on each leg of the racecourse. Marcus Brennecke's well sailed Hatari emerged at the top of the ClubSwan 50 leaderboard, holding off persistent and determined challenges from Louis Balcaen's Balthasar and August Schram on Stella Maris. Meanwhile a string of five back-to-back race victories in the ultra-modern ClubSwan 36 class helped Richard Thompson's Black Seal secure a well-deserved though tight win ahead of Giangiacomo Serena di Lapigio's G-Spot – who had won the ClubSwan Racing season's opening event in Tuscany in April – and Edoardo and Vanni Pavesio's Fra Martina. The Swan 45 class was a competitive all Italian affair which saw all three boats competing constantly changing position. Claudio Terrieri's Blue Sky pipped Stefano Masi's Ulika by a single point, with Luca Locatelli's Thetis, which had taken two race wins, only two points adrift. Video Producer: ClubSwan Racing
