10 female crews will compete at Female Offshore Med Championship
The great Marina Militare Nastro Rosa Tour sailing event is back and it's an absolute first: the Female Offshore Mediterranean Championship will start on 11 April from Genoa. Ten female crews will compete aboard ten Benetau Figaro 3 managed by Sailing Series International, the creator of the event which will be organized together with the Lega Navale Italiana of Sestri Ponente and La Maddalena. Destined to end in La Maddalena around April 15, the race will touch France and sees its uniqueness in the fact that never before the class Benetau Figaro 3 has reserved a race only for pink teams.
A peculiarity that, combined with the pitfalls of a highly technical course, have attracted the attention of the most quoted specialists from the beginning.
Among the sure protagonists of the regatta will be Claudia Rossi, reigning Double Mixed Offshore World Champion together with Pietro D'Alì and winner of three J/70 European titles, Cecilia Zorzi, winner of the European title in the same category together with Alberto Bona.
"We are coming back from a particularly intense winter period, during which we have dedicated time and resources to develop some projects that in 2021 we were not able to start because of the latest aftermath of the pandemic - explained Riccardo Simoneschi, CEO of Sailing Series Event - Among these, the Nastro Rosa Academy, a highly representative project that we announced a couple of weeks ago and that we will develop during 2022, and precisely the Female Offshore Mediterranean Championship open only to the participation of a female parterre. As a counterpart to the all-female regatta, the Marina Militare Nastro Rosa - Il giro, the regatta in stages around the Italian coasts starting on June 12th, opens its doors to double crews made up of two male or female sailors or mixed."
