Two years of dedication to the RC44 class paid off today for Russian Alexander Novoselov, his American tactician Andy Horton and the crew of Katusha, winning their first ever event on the RC44 Championship. Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda has offered the full range of conditions for the nine teams competing at the RC44 Porto Cervo Cup this week from the very light to the very strong. Today was the latter. While Saturday was lost to the 30-40 knot winds of the Mistral, big conditions on Sunday continued but were just sailable, albeit at the very upper limit of what the RC44s and their crews can endure.
