The 2021 Italian champions, Nicola and Francesco Vespasiani, won the Championship held by Yacht Club Isole di Toscana, following a close combat with the team of Matteo Pincherle and Carlo Carincola.

It was a decisive final day, where the brothers of the Associazione Vela Bracciano got a first and a second place, thus securing the title.
Manuele Gregori and Francesco Gerunzi, outgoing Italian vice champions (AV Bracciano), had to settle for third place, penalized by an early start (UFD) in the first race of the third day.

The Gulf of Follonica gave its best, offering three splendid days, two of which with light mistral winds and a grand finale with a fresh sirocco, up to 18 knots.

Excellent work by the Race Committee, directed by the Neapolitan Luciano Cosentino, and an applause from the sailors to the rescue boats, engaged in some support interventions to the fleet made necessary with the increase of the wind.
