Nastro Rosa Tour, calm stops the Beneteau Figaro 3 not the wingfoils
A lull to be remembered stopped the advance of the Beneteau Figaro 3
A lull to be remembered stopped the advance of the Beneteau Figaro 3 along the route of the first leg of the Marina Militare Nastro Rosa Tour. In regatta from Genoa to Maddalena, the fleet was stopped by the Race Committee in the late afternoon of yesterday, after that in over twenty-four hours at sea she had not managed to cover even a third of the course.
Authorized by the organization to start the engines and refuel along the Corsican coasts, the crews, particularly tried by the stay under the scorching sun that reached important temperatures, then headed towards the Sardinian island, where they arrived in dribs and drabs over the course of today afternoon, just in time to rest and leave for Formia, where the Giro dell'Italia a Vela is expected for the beginning of next week.
Meanwhile, various activities related to the Marina Militare Nastro Rosa Tour took place in Maddalena, starting with the first regattas valid for the Waszp fleet and for the Wingfoils, even if the most significant moment coincided with the arrival of the School Ship Amerigo Vespucci, which arrived in the Sardinian archipelago to welcome the event organized by SSI Events and Difesa Servizi S.p.A. in collaboration with the Italian Navy.
Returning to the regattas, in the evening, the Wingfoils category award ceremony took place at the Regatta Village where Yaris dell'Omo (Team Marina Militare) won over Luca Gasperini (Team IREN) and Enrico Giordano (Team ENIT). The CEO of ENIT, Roberta Garibaldi, awarded the winners and declared: "ENIT accompanies the sailing tour of Italy where national and international enthusiasts travel around our country. It becomes an important opportunity for the promotion of nautical tourism towards Italy which will have repercussions on a variety of national and international communication channels, such as italia.it, the official website by Enit. Furthermore, thanks to the stadium race formula regattas and the race village, enthusiasts and professionals will be able to discover the dynamic world of sea travel".
