This week the European L30 will take place in the waters of Sanremo.

Another important regatta kicks off in the Sanremo gulf thanks to the work of the Sanremo Yacht Club. The L30 Class represents a new reality that is spreading rapidly: The boats come from all over Europe but there is no shortage of non-European crews, such as the Koreans of YeogunHo who have been preparing for the event for some time. Emotionally significant is the participation of the two Ukrainian crews within which some members are on board who, having been involved in the front for months, being athletes, have obtained a special license to participate in the Championship. The Sanremo Yacht Club, always ready for new initiatives and projects, has adhered to the request of this interesting Class in order to broaden new horizons in its experience. The boats will have two days for measurement checks and launching, from 12 October the regattas will start until Sunday 16, at the […]
