THE ATHLETES OF THE YACHT CLUB SANREMO STARTING FOR THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP OF SAILING IN AUSTRALIA

Saturday 23 December 2017, the top athletes of the Yacht Club Sanremo will leave for the most important event of the season, the 420 Class Sailing World Championship.
In the waters of Fremantle (South West Australia) from 29 December 2017 to 3 January 2018, the strongest youth teams on the planet will face each other to compete for the title of World Champion. The crew of the Yacht Club Sanremo after a year of national selections have won access to the prestigious event in which they will represent the Italian colors.
The three crews are composed by Edoardo Ferraro / Francesco Orlando, Andrea Abbruzzese / Fabio Boldrini, Tommaso Cilli / Bruno Mantero, and supported by their trainer Fernanda Sesto.
The three crews, despite their young age, already have in their palmares world and European titles and I do not deny their coach with 4 Olympic participations. Despite this, they will meet equally titled crews that will make life very difficult. The forecast weather conditions are of sustained wind created by the typical thermal that is generated in the bay of Fremantle. The important thermal excursion that takes place in the desert behind Fremantle creates a strong thermal gradient that triggers sustained but optimal winds for the performance of a great World Championship. Fortunately, temperatures will be very pleasant around 30 ° and athletes will enjoy an unusual Christmas and New Year on the most beautiful Australian beaches.
Thanks to the Yacht Club Sanremo, represented by its president Beppe Zaoli, who made an important contribution to achieving this goal, is a must. The president underlined: “our boys are a great source of pride for us all and for the city of Sanremo, bringing our banner so far and high. I wish them to realize all the great work done in these years. ”
The appointment with the great sailing for the youngest of the Optimist class is instead in Sanremo with the International Meeting of the Mediterranean, a classic that closes the competitive season for younger athletes.
