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.

 

 

Si è svolta durante un bellissimo week end di fine marzo la prima tappa del circuito nazionale D-One italia, quindici barche in acqua, con la gradita presenza di atleti stranieri frai quali due ungheresi e uno svizzero. La giornata di sabato, molto soleggiata ma con poco vento non ha permesso lo svolgimento delle regate, anche se il comitato di regata ha provato in tutti modi ad attendere le condizioni per dare il via alla competizione.
