Sailing: Ambrogio Beccaria (Alla Grande - Pirelli) wins The Transat CIC in Class40

Already winner of the Transat Jacques Vabre - Normandie Le Havre last fall, Ambrogio Beccaria (Alla Grande - Pirelli) has achieved another prestigious success in offshore racing. The Transalpine won the Transat CIC this Friday by crossing the finish line in New York at 5:47:55 a.m. (French time) after 11 days 16 hours 17 minutes and 55” of racing.

“It's not often that you win two transatlantic races in a row in six months. And this is the first solo race that I have won with this boat. It's very, very important to me. And it’s one of the best races I’ve done. Often there is suffering and pain. This time I was very aware of what I was doing and everything went very well. There are some very hard moments, but in the end, I didn't find it that difficult overall. The conditions were pleasant in the sense that we had prepared ourselves for the worst. For me, the Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe was harder, but The Transat CIC was intense,” commented the skipper at the finish.

A little more than two hours after the winner, Ian Lipinski (Crédit Mutuel) took second place in 11 days, 18 hours, 38 minutes and 6 seconds at sea. Fabien Delahaye (Legallais Team Voile) should take the morning of third place.
