In a strong field of competitors, with wind conditions ranging from 6 to 25 knots, Saudade thrived and Mr. Büll steered his boat to victory, defending their title as champions.
On the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda dock where he first stood some 30 years or more ago, the Saudadeowner revealed: "It was a dream of mine to win again and now it is reality. It was a fight because we had everything this week, strong wind, we had light winds and we had very light winds. The conditions were so different each day and that is the speciality of the Costa Smeralda. The boat sails very well in the light."
