The ITA D-One fleet made visitors from GBR and HUN very welcome indeed to beautiful Alassio in mid-May.
Tommaso Buzzi, our new ITA class secretary has posted a gallery of fantastic photographs available on this website at ITA National Championships 2016
Full report to follow, but congratulations to Mario Rabbo (ITA 135) on a dominant performance and championship win. Second place was Tamas Szamody (HUN 10), third Alesssandro Novi (ITA 101) and fourth Giles Chipperfield (GBR411).
Alassio lived up to all its reputations: practice day was gloriously sunny with 25kts from the South West and huge rolling waves. 16.0kts achieved on the D-One GPS! Then we had rain and 5kts from the North East, followed by a day of overcast light Easterlies. But then we finished with the most perfect of all sailing days : baking sun, force 3, tight racing. Sailing simply does not get better than this day.
Many thanks to an excellent race team from CNAM Alassio and to all our friends in the class who made the journey. We will all be back.
