Let’s start this episode with the 44Cup that returned to the Portuguese sailing mecca of Cascais for the second event of the season. The RC44 fleet raced in this coastal resort town of Portugal, which is renowned for its northwesterly breeze. Next, the 44Cup will head to Marstrand, Sweden.
From Portugal we travel to Italy for the GC32 Racing Tour! The first event of the season that was hosted in Riva del Garda set the tone for what is about to follow; great sailing action, close battles and eager competitors.
We remain in Italy for the Formula Kite U21 and A's Youth Foil World Championships, that took place in Torregrande, Sardinia. The event offered top-level action and drama; the future is bright for these young athletes.
Finally, we set sail for Spain to enjoy more foiling action! The Gulf of Oristano welcomed an international group of elite young riders for the iQfoiL International Games. The level of competitiveness and difficulty was high.
