Good wind blown at Marina di Grosseto on the second day of the Italian Nationals. Four tough races in 10-12 knots have seen a coming back of the Italian teams, after a first day out of the top positions. Double World champ De Koning-Visser still leading (4-2-1-6 today), followed by defending italian champions Sorrentino-Pennati (1-7-25-4). Third the Omans Al Hadi-Al Hassani and on fourth Bissaro-De Paoli, main competitors for the italian title.
Other bullets for Hemmskerk-Tentij in third race (but BFD in fourth) and young Ferraglia-Stella. Italian fleet is showing big improvements in a competitive fleet, waiting to host the 2013 Worlds in Marina di Grosseto.
Many mixed team waiting for their Nacra 17, with Sorrentino-Pennati (ITA) in 2nd, Delnooz-Gerig (NED) in 5th and Pasolini-Zinn Zinnenberg (AUT) in 12th.
