The ingredients are all in: new commanders, teams ready for rematch, prestigious yacht clubs on the field. The second act of the Persico Revolution starts tomorrow, Monday August 17, in Gargnano with 16 teams at the starting line, and the table formula is back with a total of 14 races, each with four teams as protagonists.

But who are the protagonists? Let's start with the foreigners: Dutch Sail are back, the winning team of the first Revolution will have a derby with Kingdom Team Netherlands, the very young "orange" team that is back on the Persico 69F after winning the Grand Prix 1.2. In this Netherlands race there's also a bit of Italy, in fact for this second Revolution the Kingdom Team has enlisted the young Guido Gallinaro.

On water also the Danish Challenger for the Youth America's Cup, and the RHKYC Team Agiplast, the team of Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club, third in the first Revolution and with a strong desire of revenge.

In the race makes its debut the team of Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, YCCS who some days ago has announced its Italian participation to Youth America's Cup: Young Azzurra project begins tomorrow in Gargnano with a very competitive team composed by Ettore Botticini, Federico Colaninno and Francesca Bergamo, all of them experts after the race of last week.

From the synergy of Yacht Club Italiano and Società Velica of Barcola and Grignano is created the team Giulio Desiderato, Michele Paoletti and Vittorio Bissaro: they promise battle.

From Trieste arrives also the team of Yatch Club Cupa, the "Last Minute" with Sebastjan Cettul, Mirko Juretic and Matija Succi.

From Ravenna the FP.Sailing (Alessandro and Federico Caldari with Giacomo Bandini) are back, already protagonists a week ago. Then there's some people who will count on the "home" factor: from Lake Garda two teams of Yacht Club Torri, one from Gargnano, one from Riva del Garda, two from Malcesine, all full of experts of foiling, to raise the bar even more.

The program - after the training of today and cleared with the new online-briefing with the technical explanation of the special rules of the table and the rules of the race - starts tomorrow morning.

The first four races will divide the table in two: the first two of the flights will have a direct way to the final, third and fourth will go down to the lower part of the table and will have to commit to go up and access to the fourteenth and crucial race.
