The first phase of the NARC, the three weekends of training before entering the live season of the great offshore sailing, was completed with great satisfaction of all.
Owners and Regatants have been able to test manoeuvres and performances of their boats in all wind and sea conditions. Conditions read at the first session with wind from 5 to 7 knots, average wind conditions with wave formed at the second and finally strong Bora wind during the last session. Variables that allowed crews to test themselves, testing on-board equipment.
The Racing field of Punta Sdobba has always given excellent conditions to race and the internal field of Panzano has guaranteed tests even with Bora sustained while other races in the Gulf were cancelled for too much wind.
Great satisfaction of the Organizing Circles: Hannibal Yacht Club, Nautical Company Laguna, Company Vela Oscar Cosulich and Polisportiva S. Marco. The success achieved and the large number of boats registered, 26, are the testimony of the validity of the project and the interest of the owners for events well organized and professionally managed.
But The numbers don’t say everything! Many well-established sailors who took to the water to train: Mauro Pellaschier, Nicola Celon, Sandro Montefusco, Lorenzo and Marco Bodini, Stefano Cherin and Carlo Alberini.
