Dart 18 World Championships at Circolo Vela Arco - Overall

by Elena Giolai 28 Aug 11:11 BST 23-27 August 2022

After the early victory of the Italians Siviero-Bozzoli (LNI Ferrara and PerSport) the last day of the Dart 18 World Championship reserved a change in the rankings in third place with the last race held on Saturday in a northerly wind and light rain.

After the triumph of the Italian crew, who did not present themselves on the starting line in the last race for the mathematical victory, the other steps of the podium were fought over by the crews just behind, who were grouped within a few points.

In fact, while the French Hervé and Milania Le Maux remained second with a fourth place in the ninth and final race, third place went to the Swiss Michiel Feher and Andri Fried, who managed to overtake the other Frenchmen Francois Morisset with the very young Paul Le Maux at the bow.

Le Maux is preparing for the 2028 Olympics, first on the Nacra 15 and then on the Nacra 17 if his fund-raising campaign is successful. And speaking of young people, it is worth noting the presence at this world championship of crews both of a certain age (over 60), who have been passionate about the Dart catamaran for years, and of young people, who find fun and technique in this class.

And it was the Italians Federico Spina and Francesco Miseri (Tognazzi Marine Village) who won the under-25 classification with an excellent sixth place overall. A prize was also awarded to the first helmswoman, the Dutch Nicolette Van Gorp.

On Garda Trentino and at the Circolo Vela Arco, a club that offers plenty of space for bulky boats such as catamarans, the Cats with the technological A Class, both foil and non foil hulls, will be back racing. From 12 to 16 September they will be competing in the European Championship with a hundred boats.

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
