Excellent start for the 2017 Romanian sailing race season at the Setsail Back Sea International Regatta which took place on the 20 and 21st of May. Excellent wind conditions, 10-25 knots, powered the three inshore races demanding both strategy and sailing skills and the challenging offshore race.
The regatta offered two days of spectacular racing in a 36-strong fleet, including modern and classic boats racing under ORC, Farr40, Bavaria 42, Grand Soleil 42 R and First 40.7.
After the two intense days of competition the proud winners were announced at the awards ceremony on Sunday afternoon: Simina at A class, Hope at B class and Pelican at C class.
