At a press conference organised by ‘Vela Garda Trentino’ together with the sailing clubs involved there was the official presentation of the second ‘World Youth Sailing Week’ an event dedicated to youth sailing and taking place in the Garda Trentino region during the week of Easter. The event comprises a series of regattas organised in the Alto Garda region.

These regattas are for the Skiff 29’er organised at ‘Circolo Vela Arco, the Windsurf board Techno 293 at the ‘Circolo Surf Torbole’, the Laser 4.7 and Radial at the Fraglia Vela Malcesine and the small but numerous Optimist at the ‘Fraglia Vela Riva.

The Optimist regatta is supported by the ‘Lega Navale Italiana’ who are helping to cope with the demands of over a thousand participants from 36 different nations.

In the Techno class there are also participants from additional nations not represented in the Optimist fleet such as Hong Kong. A festival atmosphere which for at least the first few days will be characterised by sunshine after the dismal weather of last year’s event.

The Easter Regatta at the ‘Circolo Vela Arco for the Skiff 29er involving participants from five nations and with the average age of sailors being between 16 to18 came to a conclusion.



Nine races were disputed in conditions which did not put in difficulty the crews who were less experienced than the front runners. A conclusive victory was awarded to the Slovenian crew Janezic – Podlogar with six first positions. They finished with a five point advantage over the second position taken by the Germans Munk – Martin. The third place was taken by the mixed crew of Schwenk- Martin. Fourth place was emphatically taken by the all-female German crew Blumroth - Berking. The first Italia crew hailed from the host sailing club ‘Circolo Vela Arco’ and came in eighth place, the helmsman was Edoardo Cardellini and crew was Stefano Dezulian.

If you pass by the Fraglia Vela Riva today you would think that this meeting had already begun, there is a constant stream of overseas squads arriving and the water is full of sailors who have made an early start with their training for the event. The opening ceremony takes place on Wednesday afternoon with a procession through the old city of Riva del Garda which culminates at the Palameeting Centre to plant the 36 flags of the participating nations. After a period of steady growth over the years ,this year for the first time we have in addition the flags from the following nation’s, Algeria who have brought six sailors, Ghana who have brought Lucky Lennard to participate in the cadet category, Equador who have two cadets and two juniors and Belorussia who have five sailors.

- Registration update (open from one day): 463 at 19:00. -

We are eagerly waiting for the start of the regattas which require the most physical effort on the part of the athletes. The Windsurfing at the Circolo Surf Torbole and the Laser at the Fraglia Vela Malcesine involve both male and female athletes who are at the moment participating in the youth versions of their class but are on the road to participation in the full Olympic classes which are RSX windsurfing and the Laser Class with its male and female versions. The number of overseas competitors involved in these two regattas is very high.
