With Pietro Moschini on the helm and Gabriele Bruni calling tactics, Endlessgame represents Reale Yacht Club Canottieri Savoia in Naples in the 15 mile Race.

“We are a new team, with a new boat, and we hope to do our best. Today's Coastal Race was an important part of our training, the wind was very light and perhaps we will have the same conditions for the start of the race on Saturday,” said Pietro Moschini.

“We have new sailors and new sails, and we have began to understand how to approach the big race. We are very happy about the chemistry of our team, and we have all the elements to produce a good result for the Rolex Middle Sea Race.” 

Igor Rytov's Russian JPK 1080 Bogatyr was the overall runner up, and winner of IRC 6. Josef Schultheis and Timmy Camilleri's Xp44 Xp-act was the top Maltese yacht, third overall and winner of IRC Four.
