TEAM FURIO – 2nd PLACE at Italian Nationals

Fleet 26’s Team Furio team took 2nd place at the 2018 Italian Nationals, showing continued domination of this event, scoring top 3 finishes in the event for most of the past 5 years+.  With Mark Rogers on the bow, Shelby Milne (mast), Brian Thomas (tactics), and Kevin Downey (trimming), and skipper Keith Whittemore on the helm, Furio fought a challenging battle with the eventual regatta winner (home town La Superba, skippered by Ignazio Bonanno).  Furio led in to the last race, but dying, shifty winds allowed the home town boat to slip away in the final race to take the regatta by 1 point.  CONGRATULATIONS TO THE FURIO TEAM!  For results see 2018 Italian Nationals Regatta Results


1st Place – Tremendous Slouch Team/Scott Milne skipper

2nd Place – Rotating Teams on Kevin Downey’s boat

3rd Place – The new Tundra Rose Team/Karl Sheath skipper

It is hard to believe that the Spring Series is already over, but what a good one!
