Riccardo Simoneschi from the Organising Authority commented, "After the Nastro Rosa Warm Up event, held in Genoa during the Boat Show, where I also sailed the race to make a direct experience, we are very happy to support EUROSAF, FIV, Yacht Club Venezia, Società Velica di Barcola e Grignano, for this event that represent the "world premiere" for the new Olympic discipline. The interest during the Genoa Boat Show has been very high and we expect more for next week."
