Nice summer weather blessed the first Italian RS Aero Youth Under 18 Championship held from 7-9th October at the Tognazzi Marine Village in Rome with 23 boys and girls from all over Italy.

10 races were held off the coast of Ostia that compared the new generation of a Class that is increasingly taking hold among the very young Italian sailors.

"We are investing in training and fun" - assures the president of the Italian National Class, Guido Sirolli - "considering that we offer a boat with great racing performance and innovative both in terms of speed and maneuverability, weighing only 31kg, a boat ideal for class changes that occur between the ages of 14 and 15. "

The podium confirms a close correlation with the O'Pen Skiff class, the territory of origin of many of the athletes competing.

In first place with 23 points is the athlete of the Circolo Velico Castiglionese, Niccolò Giomarelli, reigning vice champion in the O'pen Skiff class. Second place with 26 points for Giacomo Gatta of the Circolo Nautico Savio. Third for Sara Murru, with a total of 27 points and coming from Lega Navale Sulcis, Sardinia. Fourth and fifth place, respectively for Giulio Siracusa, 37 points from the Yachting Club Santo Stefano and Elias Nonnis, 39 points from Lega Navale Sulcis.

"We have concluded a season of regattas in the best possible way" - Sirolli comments - "and for this reason we will still propose important appointments and approaches to the Youth and Master World Championship to be held in July 2023 in Italy, in Calasetta in Sardinia."

Great work was done this weekend by the race committee chaired by Mario Lupinelli.

The boats for the three days were made available by Negri Nautica and lent by some master owners of the class.

Overall Results:

1st - Niccolò Giomarelli, Circolo Velico Castiglionese, 23 points
