June 6, 2016, Punta Ala. Cippa Lippa 8, Cookson 50 owned by Guido Paolo Gamucci, wins the day at the Seventh Edition of 151 Miglia regatta-Celadrin Cup, which started from Livorno on the 2nd of June. The boats participating in the competition were 175 and the Cippa Lippa 8 is 1st in ORC International Class, winning the Challenge Cup. Line honours to Pendragon, owned by Nicola Paoleschi. This edition of the 151 Miglia was difficult, with a high wind at the beginning, which decreased later, and a lot of delicate phases. Matteo Holm from the Millenium Technology Center was on board and he managed the sails programme. He commented “the regatta was challenging. We sailed close to the wind between 9 and 18 knots for 80% of the course. This victory demonstrates that we worked well on the sail plan optimisation and that Monolithic sails make a difference. It is amazing how the boat improved her performance on a bowline.” Congratulations to the owner and his crew: Francesco Diddi, Carlo Simoncelli, Daniele Andreini, Nicola Cimbro Stedile, Davide Rosa, Massimo Segnini, Riccardo Degl’innocenti, Andrea Venezian, Gabriele Bruni and Matteo Holm. Congratulations also to other boats with Millenium sails. Scricca‬, Comet 38S owned by Leonardo Servi, is 2nd in ORC3 (partial inventory Monolithic) and Unpopergioco‬, IY 9.98 owned by Marco Balicco, is 3rd in ORC3.
