OneSails wins the 2022 Aegean 600 race

Gregor Stimpfl’s Hagar V, sporting a OneSails sails 4T Forte full inventory, is the overall corrected time winner both in ORC and IRC of the 2022 Aegean 600 race!

A great result since the weather conditions were quite unstable, with many calm moments and long downwind hours with Meltemi blowing 15 to 25 knots, but also very challenging in an upwind beat with more than 30 knots and formed seas. Indeed, the Scuderia 65, designed by Harry Miesbauer, proved to be highly performing and reliable in tough conditions. A great design with state-of-the-art OneSails sails, which allowed the crew to push hard and express the enormous power of the boat.

Gregor Stimpfl is very satisfied with this important result, in one of the most important offshore regattas of the Mediterranean. Our CEO Dede De Luca, tactician and team manager said it was a fantastic regatta, even though very demanding. He said: “As soon as we thought we could rest, some new surprise came up. I want to thank Gregor for this opportunity and the crew for pushing this so hard non-stop, especially in the last 8 hours when we realized we could make it”.

The crew counted: Giacomo Conti bowman, Peter Stimpfl bowman, Giulio Maccarrone bowman/trimmer, Ivo Laimer pitman, Aldo Scuderi skipper/pitman, Enrico Turrini trimmer/watch captain, Michele Franceschini main trimmer, Gregor Stimpfl helmsman/owner, Harry Miesbauer runners and boat designer, Hans Hell runners, Alessandro Alberti navigator (winner of both editions of the Aegean 600) Dede De luca tactician/team manager. Congratulations to the whole crew! Good job guys!
