At the Fraglia Vela Riva, the European Championships of the Flying Fifteen class were concluded, frequented by amateurs who pleasantly combine sailing regattas with a nice week of vacation, particularly appreciated on Garda Trentino and in Riva del Garda.

That's how about forty crews spent beautiful days, competing in all ten races, often with sun and perfect wind from the south arriving in the afternoon, the ideal time to allow everyone to party in the evening, have time to visit the surrounding area with short trips in the morning and get to the club in the late morning ready to race.

And also the competitive part was exciting, since there was not an absolute leader, but the final was balanced with the first two in equal score: after ten races and two discards there has risen to the top of the podium, with 29 points, Mackay-Lawson, who, having finished with a last race better than direct opponents Goacher-Harper (seventh against a tenth) won the continental title.

Six points behind the other Bris was Wells-Jameson, second in the last race. Penalized by an OCS the winners of the final race, Gorringe-Brown, ended seventh.

On the part of everyone, the desire to return to the Fraglia Vela Riva early, choosing a period in which many participants can come with the whole family: evidently Garda Trentino once more has "bewitched" those who enjoyed it (especially by sailing on the lake) of the beauty and the enjoyment that are found in this area.
