A splendid sunny day and five more races in medium winds brought the M32 European Championships, the 4th and final stage of the European Circuit of the class, organised by Fraglia Vela Riva, to a close on Garda Trentino.

As expected it was a hard-fought final, especially for second and third place, as the Dutch of Bliksem won by a margin of 10 points. Redemption of the Italian Andrea Lacorte on Vitamina Veloce, who after a negative day on Saturday, managed to climb up the ranking by one position, confirming his second place overall and winning the overall classification of the European Circuit after the four stages held in 2022.

In third place by a single point was China One Ningbo. Once again the logistic base offered by Fraglia Vela Riva proved to be an excellent solution for this type of catamarans and their teams, who found the necessary spaces.

On Tuesday the 51st World Championship of the Sunfish class, the most popular boat in the world, will begin on Garda Trentino, with the organisation of Circolo Vela Torbole. On Monday the practice race was held and in the evening the opening ceremony on the terrace of Circolo Vela Torbole.

At the start were around eighty crews from 14 nations, mostly from America and South America (Aruba, Bonaire, Chile, Colombia, Curacao, Ecuaduor, Guatemala, Virgin Islands, Holland, Peru, USA, Venezuela, Puerto Rico) with Italy fielding 12 helmsmen.
