District 14  Regatta Report

Regatta Base

Trofeo dell'Odio


Sailed at Circolo Vela Gargano, Italy.

Nice sunny day at Garda Lake with warm temperature. The 12.5 mile race started at 9:45 under a 10-12 knot north wind (the classical "peler") from Bogliaco.

The only weather mark was positioned in front of Campione, 7 Nm north from Bogliaco. The first boat that rounded the mark was ITA 8114 skippered by Paolo Masserdotti with Max Tassini as crew, followed after 30 sec. by the former World and European champion Roberto Benamati with Giamba Gatti on board.

The north wind was, at that moment, easing, and after 30 minutes completely stopped with all the boats waiting for the rising of the south wind ("ora").

The south wind came in very, very lightly and shifty and finally it was Benamati-Gatti that won the race just 20 seconds in front of Masserdotti-Tassini and the brothers Mazzucchi from Iseo Lake in third.

Great finish of the western Garda Lake coast season. See you next year for new great challenges with our lovely Stars.
