Maxi 72 - Corfu Challenge 2017 - Practice Day
The 2017 Corfu Challenge Maxi 72 class regatta kicked off with an official practice day. Prior to leaving the dock, Father Alex Karloutsos came down to bless newly named Evniki, as well as the entire fleet. Teams then zipped out to the racecourse in a sunny, 20 knot north westerly wind. Breeze remained consistent throughout the day, only decreasing briefly near the windward mark in front of Mount Pantokrator.
