GC32 Catamaran, Austria Cup event wraps up with the silverware going to Team Luna Rossa

From the following article by Sail-World:

The final day of the GC32 Austria Cup started just as expected, with ultra-light conditions on the beautiful Lake Traunsee, but as the day progressed, both the Gold and Silver fleets got the opportunity to show off these spectacular flying machines at their best.

Racing started early at 0930 on the final day of the inaugural GC32 Austria Cup in just 5-6kts of wind. After just one race organisers we had to pause and wait, due to the lack of wind and the shifting wind direction.  The people from Lake Traunsee shaked their head and told us: 'You are now officialy introduced to the Alpine lake weather conditions.'

A few hours later the eight team fleet enjoyed we had perfect sailing conditions with a good wind direction (south/south-east) and 15 to 18 knots of wind.

With the eight teams separated in the Gold Fleet and the Silver Fleet, it was soon decided that Seb Col Racing was the winner in the Silver Fleet. After some spectacular flying in the Gold Fleet, Luna Rossa Challenge won the first GC32 Austria Cup ever!
