Another weekend at the Sanremo Yacht Club during which the “Festival della Vela” took place, the fourth stage of West Liguria, which marked the conclusion of the Winter Sailing Championship, organized by the Sanremo Yacht Club and now in its thirty-ninth edition, which sees the overall final victory of SARCHIAPONE FUORISERIE by Gianluigi Dubbini, on equal points but with a better final result with IL PINGONE DI MARE IIII by Federico Stoppani, winner in the IRC ranking.
There were two particular days in the Gulf of Sanremo for this final: on Saturday the absence of wind kept the crews on the ground while on Sunday, with a north-easterly wind, a race was held with a quick return due to the arrival of the perturbation. There was also the social event for all the crews which took place on Saturday evening at Villa Nobel with a wonderful party accompanied by a great live music show.
In the ORC A class FAREWELL IV, owned by Alberto Franchella, was victorious, followed by OTTOCINQUE XL, owned by Dario Caffaro and by GORILLA GANG XL, owned by Andrea Statari. SARCHIAPONE FUORISERIE, in addition to the overall final victory, won first place in class ORC B, second IL PINGONE DI MARE IIII, third FROM GREEN TO BLUE, by Paolo Rampulla.
The PINGONE DI MARE IIII established itself in the IRC class, followed by GORILLA GANG XL. The appointment with the West Liguria Winter Championship is now for next autumn, when the fortieth edition of West Liguria will start with the Trophée Grimaldi.
