Magazine of 12 04 2021 - 1st Round
Here we are, the Vcup 17th edition has officially started.
Once the 2 qualifying evenings that defined the starting blocks were archived, the first evening was staged.
The tournament formula is always the same. The general regulation which, over time has always had some changes, this year presents some innovations aimed at improving the solution of the inevitable disputes due to maneuvers in the water.
The range of what might be subject of a protest has been expanded and some mechanisms have been introduced such as redress and downgrading to DSQ.
The primary effect is that the arrival orders will not be frozen and unchangeable as in the previous editions but the results of a protest can change them with consequences on the score of the tournament and also of the starting class in the following evening.
Now we come to the numbers of this edition and of the evening.
93 participants in the tournament including the winners of the last 6 editions as Goffe, Mistral Tarifa, Accademia, Cocal, Donmasino and Groppone. Let's keep an eye on them because no one has ever won the VCUP more than once and if it can happen this year, it can only happen for one of them.
But how did they go on prime time?
Groppone makes full loot wins the red A and takes home the 40 points.
Goffe, winner of the last edition answers present, arrives first in the blue B, takes 37 points and climbs in A. 37 points also for Donmasino, third in his group. 31 points for Mistral and Cocal, absent Accademia.
Weightless but not the only one, 20 of the 93 boats entered were missing in the water.
Among the teams, the victory of the evening goes to the WOT (Cer@, Djonny, Donmasino, Veleggio) who thanks (tanks ?) to 2 first and a third place get 38 points, pursued by the NOR (Balder, Euphoria, Goffe, Laj2) a few tenths of a point with 2 first and a fourth place.
The tournament is still long, there will be time for everyone to make up for it and discards could play an important role.
To the next
