Spanish Sailing Team Wins Sardinia Cup
Sat Jun 26, 4:43 PM ET Add Sports - AP to My Yahoo!

PORTO CERVO, Sardinia - Spanish King Juan Carlos led his yacht to victory over the United States on Saturday in the Sardinia Cup's first offshore sailing team world championships.

The United States had been leading the weeklong, seven-regatta series but fell behind on the last day in a tacking duel with the king's Bribon Telefonica Movistar yacht. The king co-skippered the boat with former IMS/class world champion Pedro Campos.

The Sardinia Rolex Cup, founded as the Mediterranean answer to the British Admiral's Cup, is held every two years on the Costa Smeralda. This was the first time it was granted world championship status by the international sailing federation.

Despite a series of U.S. protests, contending rule violations, Spain was declared the championship winner with 55 points. The United States was next with 58 followed by the Italy Blue team with 67.

"We saw every kind of wind conditions this week, which put our entire team to the test," Campos said. "King Juan Carlos, an avid competitor, brought us good luck."

The king joined the Spanish team Thursday evening but had to fly to Madrid on Friday and return for Saturday's race.
