Feva World Champions - Reigning Italian RS prepares to defend title


'Feva World Championships'    Martin Wadhams    Click Here to view large photo

173 RS Fevas, 346 sailors and numerous parents and supporters from across Europe, North America and Russia are set to descend on Marina di Grosseto, in Tuscany, Italy later this week for the Allen sponsored RS Feva World Championships. The venue is well prepared for this event having hosted the F18 World Championships last week in superb racing conditions.

RS Feva Championship racing will begin on Monday 22 July and conclude on Friday 26 July for the RS Feva, an ISAF Class. The reigning World Champions, Leonardo Stocchero and Gianluca Virgenti, will be looking to defend their title on home waters, whilst challenging them will be the ever-improving sailors from Holland and the GBR RYA Junior Squad sailors. The Czechs are in their first full season of RS Feva sailing and are bringing the largest percentage of their home fleet, showing real determination to impact on the overall results. No team has yet successfully defended the Feva World’s title, so Stocchero and Virgenti are looking to be the first.

The race format is set to be in three fleets for the first two days before being split into the Gold, Silver and Bronze fleet for the remainder of the championship. With a sea breeze averaging 12 knots each afternoon, competition is set to be intense.

Tuscany, situated on the Maremma coast is a unique and fascinating location for sailors and parents alike. While the racing is underway parents, siblings and spectators have the option of the beach, a kitesurf school and cycle paths along with an extensive array of restaurants over looking the water.

Follow the action, the defending sailor’s progress and the challenger’s attack via daily updates on the RS Feva Class Worlds website at website! and twitter rsfevaworlds.

Full RS manufacturer’s support will be available to assist with the smooth running of the event.
