Marazzi Sailing: Penalised...

Just in: Marazzi Sailing are penalised for being over the TP52 Class crew weight limit in Race 1 of the Audi MedCup Circuit

As a result of being officially measured over the crew weight limit for the TP52 Class by a small margin, Switzerland’s Marazzi Sailing have been penalised three points from their aggregate score, effectively negating their opening race win at the City of Alicante Trophy regatta, the first event of the 2009 Audi MedCup Circuit.This decision by the International Jury dropped the Swiss team to fourth overall on equal points with Emirates Team New Zealand, and means Argentina’s Matador lead the standings in the TP52 class. The combined crew weight must be less than 1273 kilos. C
