Tarantella took first place in IMS 3 in Syysseilaus on 16.9. This completes our unbelievably succesful season with 7 wins in a row. This also confirms our victory in the Vestek IMS Ranking as well.

The Syysseilaus Race consisted of a windward /leeward race and an archipelago race.

The wind was very variable, with gusts up to 14 m/s. We succeeded in selecting the right genua and spinnaker every time. In the windward/leeward race we took an excelent start, and could sail in free winds. The wind was perfect for our G3, which earlier this year has performed extremely well. We won FortinaFun with 56 seconds in corrected time.

In the archipelago race the wind was weaker, and we changed to our old G2. But the wind strenghtened again, and on the leg back from Gråskärsbådan we changed again to G3. This leg was  decisive, and we could leave Fortina Fun and our other competotors clearly behind us. Just before Rönnkobben we changed to G2 again as the wind weakened, as we came more inshore. Also this was the correct choise.

FortinaFun was second loosing 5 minutes in corrected time to Tarantella. Merinna finished third.
