Coppa America a Venezia: nell’ultimo giorno di gare ha vinto il Team Energy

Confermando un grande momento di forma, l’equipaggio di Energy Team si è distinto nell’ America’s Cup World di Venezia. Una vittoria meritata, se si considera che la squadra di Loïck Peyron, tornato a bordo dopo l’assenza di San Diego e Napoli, ha guidato la classifica generale per tutta la durata della manifestazione.

La gara di domenica era estremamente difficile, condizioni di vento leggero hanno interessato il bacino di San Marco, preso d’assalto da più di ottanta mila persone e una miriade di imbarcazioni di ogni tipo. In una situazione del genere, solo le migliori squadre riescono a sfruttare le raffiche di vento più significative.

La gara si è risolta nelle prime fasi, quando Loick Peyron ha trovato il gap a poco distante da Emirates Team New Zealand, e quindi lo slancio con una progressione lenta ma costante verso la Riva degli Schiavoni, mentre dietro gli avversari si ostacolavano a vicenda. L’unico a tenere il passo dell’AC45 francese è stato l’equipaggio di Spithill ORACLE TEAM USA.

Separati da più di quattrocento metri da Energy Team, James Spithill non si arrende e grazie alla chiamata di John Kostecki ha cercato di riaprire fino all’ultima gara. Un tentativo che ha visto gli Stati Uniti recuperare la maggior parte del distacco su AC45, fino a ripresentarsi a un paio di lunghezze all’arrivo. Peyron non ha perso l’attenzione, riuscendo a tagliando il traguardo con una manciata di secondi di vantaggio. A differenza degli apripista, il resto della flotta ha lottato per fuggire dalla zone di piatta totale che hanno costellato il bacino di San Marco. Per il terzo posto si è aperto il duetto tra Artemis e Emirates Team New Zealand.
I risultati maturati al termine della AC World Series di Venezia hanno permesso a ORACLE TEAM USA Spithill di estendere la propria leadership in classifica generale alla vigilia dell’ultimo evento, tenutosi a fine giugno in quel di Newport, il vantaggio degli Stati Uniti è ora quattro punti.
L’evento finale del World Series AC 2011-2012 si terrà a Newport, RhodeIsland, tra il 26 giugno ed il 1 luglio prossimo.

Separated by more than four hundred meters from the Energy Team, James Spithill did not give up and thanks to the call of John Kostecki has attempted to re-open until the last race of the tide. An attempt which saw the U.S. AC45 recover most of the secondment, up to present a few lengths behind the arrival of a couple of lengths. Peyron has not lost his focus and the return of the adversary has managed to better the situation by cutting the finish line with a handful of seconds ahead.

Unlike the frontrunners, the rest of the fleet struggled to escape from areas of flat total that have punctuated the basin of San Marco. More than once there have been contacts between the AC45, transported further by the current from the wind.
