Dart 18 World Championships at Circolo Vela Arco after Day 4

by Elena Giolai 26 Aug 2022 23:09 BST 23-27 August 2022

Title mathematically assigned at the Dart 18 Worlds, which will end on Saturday 27 August at Circolo Vela Arco, on Garda Trentino.

Alessandro Siviero, Italian helmsmam, a fisherman by profession, but an excellent sailor with a Dart 18 world title to his credit already won in 2018, along with 3 other world titles won in the Melges 32 class and in the ORC class, in spite of the pressure of the eve of the event and after an error in the boat's set-up on the first day in strong winds, he pulled out all the stops and was able to string together a series of partial victories and second places over the next few days, enabling him to win a day early.

For this World Championship, organised by the Circolo Vela Arco, Siviero had chosen and prepared bowman Giacomo Bozzoli a few weeks earlier, with whom he trained on the Upper Garda every weekend in August in order to arrive at the World Championship adequately prepared. After eight races out of the 10 scheduled, the Italians thus calculated they had mathematically won, considering the 12-point gap from the seconds and the sequence of partials with one third, two seconds and five victories, often gained after splendid recoveries.

On Saturday, the last scheduled day of this world championship, which has seen some sixty crews competing, the remaining podium positions will be played out between the French Hervé and Melania Le Maux and Morisset-Paul Le Maux, as well as between the Swiss Fehr-Fried and the Austrians Klampfer-Berger: an interesting final with three of the four crews within a single point.

At the weekend it will also be the turn of the water sport of the moment at the Circolo Surf Torbole: the RRD One Hour Wing Foil is scheduled.

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 2022

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 2022
