On Lake Garda Trentino-Italy, with the organisation of Circolo Vela Arco, Consorzio Garda Trentino Vela and the Italian Sailing Federation, the Dart 18 Catamaran World Championships are in full swing.

About sixty crews, who in the first three days of competition competed in a total of six races with a very challenging start due to the strong wind (18-22 knots) and the insidious wave, which put some crews in difficulty.

Italy took the lead with Alessandro Siviero, the Ferrara-born helmsman who has been at the top of the national and international rankings in the Dart 18 class for several years now, and for this Championship was racing with young Giacomo Parasacchi Bozzoli on his bow.

The pair leads with four victories, a second and a third, which currently gives them a 9-point advantage over the French Hervé and Melania Le Maux. Third are the Austrians Klampfer-Berger.

The world champions titles will be awarded on Saturday, 27 August, after the last two days of racing.

Reading the wind, negotiating the tide, avoiding the mud For Poole Week competitors on Monday, it was all about getting on the right side of the wind shifts. There were a lot of them, and they were big. That and negotiating the tide, while some later in the day also had to think about keels and mud. Posted on 30 Aug

Not a bad day on the water That was the consensus among competitors on coming ashore after the first day. The wind had blown - not very hard at times, but generally enough - and the sun had shone now and again as well. So it had been quite a satisfactory day, all things considered. Posted on 29 Aug
