72nd Regata Darke de Mattos


The traditional regatta Darke de Mattos was held Saturday at the Yacht Club of Rio de Janeiro. In its 72nd consecutive year the competition attracted 10 crews of Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo and Brasilia to sail on a very peculiar course, which goes to the Copacabana Palace, then returning to the ICRJ harbor.

The day was typical of Rio de Janeiro with the summer heat and light east wind, with tide filling at the time of start. Part of the fleet sought the protection of the Sugar Loaf and part was in the middle of the channel. Who went to the coast took the advantage. At the float of the Copacabana Palace, Lars Grael and Samuel Gonçalves were first, but who took the transitional prize Ivo Strada, while riding in sixth, were Luis Mosquera and Roberto Freire.

On the way back, with an ebbing tide against the fleet, it was better to go outside of Contunduba, skirting the island. After more than three hours of racing, the winners were Sergio Goretkin and Renato Cruz. Jorge Bhering / José Augusto Barcellos and Lars Grael / Samuel Gonçalves completed the podium. The Golden Xulipa, the last-place prize went to Admar Gonzaga and Alexandre Freitas.
