Alfa Romeo wins Copa del Rey
"Bella Mente" has tried, but "Alfa Romeo" was the fastest boat of the Mini Maxi fleet of the Copa del Rey Audi Mapfre. Neville Crichton's white and majestic 70 footer has confirmed, in case anyone doubted it, that he is the fastest one of the Mini Maxi fleet registered at the Copa del Rey Audi Mapfre.
In 8 to 14 knots of wind with a direction of 190, "Alfa Romeo" crossed the finish line with two minutes advantage over American "Bella Mente", who was second, followed by" Allegre" in third place. "Bella Mente's" revenge came in the second race, where "Alfa Romeo" crossed first but couldn't gain the time she needs to give in compensation, and was second after Hap Fauth's Mini Maxi. Praiseworthy third place for Fernando Campos and Kiko Sánchez Luna's "CAM" in today's second race -and the Copa's last-, ahead Mini Maxis "Allegre", "Container" and "Jethou", which were fourth, fifth and sixth respectively. "Bella Mente" finishes the Copa del Rey Audi Mapfre in second place, and "Container" will have to make do with the third one.
