The regatta was won by Mascalzone Latino on 22 points, tied on points with Aqua but winning by virtue of having more firsts. In 3rd place was Oracle, just 1 point behind. That 1 point can separate the first 3 places after 10 races is testament to just how close the racing in the RC44 fleet. The boat is a real racing machine and in the generally light breezes really showed how beautifully efficient it is. In the lighter races the lead RC44 was beating the back marker TP52, despite starting 5 minutes behind. It really is a hugely rewarding boat to sail, with all the grace of an America's Cup Class boat upwind, and the speed of a TP52 downwind. The one negative for a regatta like Key West is that the boats are hard work to hike out for a 1.8 mile beat, particularly when as a tactician your goal is to do only 4 tacks in the beat because the corners are so strong in Key West. However, on the much shorter courses we have on the circuit, they are actually more comfortable to hike out than a boat with lifelines.
