The 2022 EurILCA Europa Cup Italy concluded today at Circolo Vela Torbole, with the wonderful participation of 512 sailors representing 24 countries, including the class legend Robert Scheidt BRA and various Olympic sailors such as Shai Kakon ISR, Marilena Makri CYP, Elena Vorobeva CRO, Silvia Zennaro ITA and Gintare Scheidt LTU.
The racing started at 13:00 today as per scheduled. The Race Committe decided to set two courses: course A for all the 3 ILCA 6 fleets and the ILCA 7, and course B for all 3 ILCA 4.
The wind conditions were very tricky and lighter than in the previous days, with a breeze varying from 9 to 14 knots.
