Italian F18 Nats 2015 @Punta Ala: Ferraglia & Bianchini Champs

Image above: training at Garda. Left from Punta Ala.-- Matteo Ferraglia & Lorenzo Bianchini won the 2015 Italian Nats at Punta Ala sailing the Australian built Windrush Edge & Ullman sails. (Soldano has left the loft business, reducing even more the specialized independent sail makers in the F18)
The Edge  built by Brett Burvill continues to show how competitive it is.

Matteo & Lorenzo have been preforming last years but had bad luck at Grossetto. With current racing form it is a pity not seeing them registered for Kiel.
