Punta Ala 2018. Last Tuscan weekend for the Italian Formula 18 fleet before the European Championships to be held in Spain at Costa Brava, end of June.

Two technical days for the 21 performing catamarans that have reached the Punta Ala Camping Resort. We had good sunny days and almost summer temperatures.
First day with a Mistral wind from 12knots of the first race to almost 20knots in the third plus waves. Capsizes and nice speeds for the F18s, which benefited the experienced crews in high breeze racing.

Second day we had very complex conditions with very variable north-west wind. Among the 12 knots up to force the Race Committee to shorten race  4 and 6.

Punta Ala as we say “has not betrayed”, with its welcome and the high possibility of closing the program of the event. As always, the Punta Ala Sailing Center in the organization, the Regatta Committee and the Camping Resort delivered.

Now boats on the road trailer for Costa Brava to bring a lot of Italy to the European Championship
