The winners of Round Palagruza Cannonball 2016

THE INTERNATIONAL NON STOP RACE, 11 to 16 April 2016

Three classes - three winners: Fuczik, Lagger, Brückner

During the race, the fleet had to fight extensive "oil fields" (= low wind zones) that played crucial roles in results of many crews. Therefore, this time only 19 of 30 yachts finished the race. Because of that, the finishing time was almost 30 hours over the last years Peter Stefaner’s record.

Thrilling, three - hour battle, in the fastest class (Bavaria 42 Match), took place at the area of the island Murter. Christian Fuczik opted for the off - shore route, while Gerhard Tüchler and Wolfgang Lux chose a course closer to the mainland. After 80 hours and 45 minutes Fuczik and Co-skipper Ute Wagner secured the Blue Riband for the fastest yacht Overall.

Even more dramatic ran took place in the midnight duel for the Bavaria 40CS class winner. Their battle remarkable lasted 84 hours, almost exactly three and a half days. Finally, Manuel Lagger took David Hollinger for the whole 59 seconds.

In the new ELAN 350 class, Maximilian Brückner came fifteen minutes before Christian Pfann at the finish.

Adriatic Challenge congratulates to all Round Palagruza Cannonball participants!

See you in 2017.
