Good to see also how the Mixed crew and 2011 Italian champs, Sorrentino&Pennati performing again on their Mattia. Pity we'll not have them at LA. But they will be next year at this same venue, Marina Grosseto, for the 2013 Worlds.
Report By Lamberto Cesari
"Only one race on the last day of the italian nationals, won in strong wind by Hemmskerk-Tentij. De Koning-Visser are easily taking the victory, showing to be ready for the F18 Worlds in Los Angeles next September. Vittorio Bissaro and Carlo de Paoli are Italian champion just one point in front of Sorrentino-Pennati, finishing 3 boats ahead of them in the last race. Good performance of Vittorio and Carlo at their first season together. Now also for them it’s time to fly to LA and sail against all the big guys.

Perfect organization by Compagnia della Vela Grosseto, claiming themselves ready to host the 2013 Worlds.
