5/29/10: NEB built ALEGRE Continues Run of Firsts in Rolex Capri Sailing Week


Alegre takes clean sweep at Rolex Capri Sailing Week

The Mills 68 Alegre was unstoppable at the Rolex Capri Sailing Week, taking a clean sweep of all six races in the IMA Mini-Maxi class. Assisted by Francesco de Angelis on tactics this extends her sequence of continuous wins to two events after her Regate Pirelli victory earlier this month. Andres Soriano, owner and driver of Alegre, was delighted:

“It’s wonderful, we ended last season winning the Rolex Middle Sea Race which was a great way to end the season. It was a very tough race but was probably the best sailing achievement I have ever had. Our success at Rolex Capri Sailing Week is a combination of thought and co-ordination that has improved the performance of the boat. We knew what she was good at from the previous year and a half, and we also knew where the weak points where. We worked closely with Mark Mills, the designer, and we put together a wish list of suggestions to make the boat go better. The keel has been lengthened to improve stability and we have stiffened the mast, but in all we have only added about 150 kg. After the changes, our first event was Palma Vela, then Portofino and now here in Capri, we have got the full measure of the changes that have come into play.”
