THE ABATE DRAGON WINTER SERIES TROPHY IS OVER

A spring sun and climate welcomed the racers from all over Europe for this second stage of the Dragon Class Winter Championship. A Sanremo that for three days gave the participants of this first edition a decidedly mild climate with a nice wind that was the protagonist: five beautiful regattas between seven and fifteen knots, with great enthusiasm of the racers, especially for those coming from the Northern Europe, such as Finland, Germany or Russia, which certainly did not expect such favorable conditions. The Abate Trophy was fought to the last edge: after four races, four crews were grouped together in just two points of difference, only the completion of the fifth race determined the final classification.

Two hundred Optimists, the first boat for all the very young, coming from all over Europe have nicely invaded the Porto Vecchio of Sanremo this week for the traditional Mediterranean Meeting now in its 37th edition. A record number that of this edition which shows more and more the appreciation of sailors of all ages for the city, its regatta course and the organization of the Sanremo Yacht Club. Unfortunately, the weather was not extremely favorable and the lack of wind allowed the dispute of only two races in three days, leaving everyone happy with a beautiful last race, which started at the limit of the allowed time. These young people, from nine to fifteen years old, armed with a great passion that leads them to race even in these not exactly hot seasons, however, have found mild temperatures in the Ligurian Gulf to such an extent that someone has […]
