The stunning Punta Ala Yacht Club plays host to the FIV Italian RS Feva Nationals
The stunning Punta Ala Yacht Club plays host to the FIV Italian RS Feva Nationals. With a record turnout of 81 teams from across Italy the Championship will be a truly fantastic event for all involved.
Michele Colledan Italian RS Feva class President added “This year was terrible for many countries and Italy was the first in Europe to be hardly hit by the Covid19 pandemics. Of course, besides the tragedy, this had an important negative effect on all the sports activities, including sailing that was completely blocked for about 4 months.
In spite of that, the National Championship appears to be a real breakthrough with 81 RS Feva registered, a number that couldn't even be dreamed only in March or April. With this number, representing for us a new record, RS Feva is probably the largest Italian fleet among the youth double-handed championships, for the first time ahead of 420 (only 29er which will be run mid-October and is still pending).”
The event starts today Wednesday 2nd September, 14 races scheduled, no more than 4 per day. Wishing the competitors and organisers fair winds and good competition.
