Record of participation in this eighth edition of The Carnival Race, organized by the Yacht Club Sanremo, with the precious support of the Cozzi Parodi Group, in the perfect location of Marina degli Aregai. 143 boats of the 420 class from all over Europe met for four days of racing. The splendid weather made it possible to run all 11 scheduled tests, a truly exceptional case in a regatta of this type, leaving room for everyone to demonstrate their skills in light, medium and strong winds. Three fleets at sea: for the Open fleet, that is male or mixed, two days of selection to decide the Gold and the Silver group. 54 best crews in the Gold fleet competed in six further races which in the end saw the French Schemmel / Boudard on the podium in first place, in front of the Greek crew Giannoulis / Giannouli who also won the Mixed classification, in third place the Italians Taglialegne / Versolatto of the Società Velica Barcola and Grignano. Excellent success in the women’s group by Michelini / Bonifaccio from Mandello, ahead of the German Steinleun / Adolph and the home crew Terzi / Gentili who always confirm themselves as a top-level crew after the third place in the European Championship and in the Palamos regattas. The favorable conditions and a high level organization have allowed this regatta to become one of the most popular in the world of the 420 class.
