Sail-World.com : Lake Como Italy for Vintage Yachting Games in 2012

Lake Como Italy for Vintage Yachting Games in 2012

'Vintage yachts will strut their stuff, ex-Olympic classes'    .

If you are going to be, or can arrange to be, anywhere near Italy's most beautiful of all lakes, Lake Como, next July, AND you love classic yachts, then you shouldn't miss the 2012 Vintage Yachting Games. There you will be able to see sailing boats such as the Europe, 12' Dinghy, O-Jolle, Flying Dutchman, Yngling, Tempest, Soling, Dragon and 5.5 Metre.

Yes, they will be racing, but really it's a grand excuse to show off these boats which used to be Olympic classes, and are no more.

This event, apart from the ambition of being the replacement of the Olympic event for the former Olympic Classes, is also a showcase for the participating boats.

If you are lucky enough to sail one of these boats, then it's time to do something about it if you want to enter.

The entry has two phases. First the National secretaries have to pre-enter (claim) their expected number of delegates on the Vintage Games website?nid=91840. They should do this as soon as possible by clicking here?nid=91840 .

Then in the second phase (10-JAN-2012 - 31-MAY-2012) the teams can be entered by name and sail number. This gives the opportunity to finish the selection procedures early next year.

Lake Como - Bellagio -  .. .  
The event program goes from 7th - 15th July. This is the second time that the Vintage Yachting Games have been held. The first edition was held in Medemblik in the Netherlands from 20–27 September 2008. During the closing ceremony the next host country, Italy, received the Vintage flag from the mayor of Medemblik.

Like any normal racing event, there'll be lots of prizes, but symbolism will take a high priority. Besides the event prizes, daily prizes, VIP trophy and country trophy there are perpetual trophies for each class. These trophies has the names of the Olympic victors engraved on the back, symbolizing the Olympic past.

On the foot the names of the Vintage Yachting Games winners will be engraved, symbolizing the continuation of the class. In that respect the winners of the Vintage Yachting Games will be expanding the direct line from the Olympic victors.

The Vintage Yachting Games Organization is a non-commercial joint venture of the following former Olympic Classes (Vintage Yachting Classes): Europe, 12' Dinghy, O-Jolle, Flying Dutchman, Yngling, Tempest, Soling, Dragon and 5.5 Metre. Her supervisory board consists of the Presidents/Chairmen of above classes.

For all information about the Vintage Yachting Games go to their website?nid=91840.
