Trieste: “Banco Espirito Santo” with Russell Coutts on tactics and boat owner, Patrick De Barros, at the helm, won the Trieste leg of the RC44 Circuit.
For almost all the regattas the crew wore Bistrow T-shirts and Hissar Bermuda shorts for the light wind and warm temperature conditions which characterised the days of the competition in the Gulf of Trieste; only on the penultimate day did the crew don the RC44 oilskin with both the Long John and the RC Spray Top against the fresher Bora winds which began blowing at around the 20 knot mark, and finally provided conditions for some spectacular trials.
Currently, Banco Espirito Santo is lying in second place in the overall rankings. The final event in the RC 44 Championship Tour will be held at Puerto Calero from 10th -14th December.

Paris, France - Franck Cammas, winner of the Volvo Ocean Race as skipper of Groupama, was elected Sailor of the Year in France in 2012, during the traditional "Night of Champions" which was held in Paris at the Theatre Edward VI.
"I'm fierce," said Cammas receiving the award, "since there are so many great sailors in this audience. Sailing is a very broad discipline, encompassing categories of sailors very different, and it is difficult to judge and make a list: an Olympic sailor and one leaving for a solo ocean race are the two opposite poles. But with the work you can switch between them, and it's exciting for us sailors dedicate ourselves to so many different disciplines in a single life. For this sailing is a sport formidable. "
