Foiling Week - Moth Class Italian Open Championship Day 2

The Foiling Week 2014
Martina Orsini
For the Foiling Week 2014 a spectacular sunny day highlighted the colors of Lake Garda and a timely Ora wind guaranteed three races of the Moth Class Italian Open Championship 2014.

A perfect Ora – the typical afternoon breeze – around 15 knots, without the excesses of the first day (28 knots of wind with gusts over 30), allowed the 34 mothies to race in the best of conditions.

13-11-2014, Capetown (ZAF), Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15, Team Alvimedica attends the service of Archbishop Emeritus, Nobel Peace Prize winner Desmond Tutu at Saint Georges Cathedral in Cape Town.

This 'small world championship' - so called for the number of sailors who came from eight different countries - has at the top of the rankings three remarkable names: the two Australians sailors Josh McKnight (1-1-4-1-1-2), moth world champion in 2012, and Rob Gough (3-4-1-2-3-1), always in the top ten world ranking list, and the Virgin Islands's sailor Anthony Kotoun (2-2-2 -6-2-4), who won the American title this year.

Fleet action at the 2013 ISAF Sailing World Cup - Melbourne.

At the moment, the first italian sailor is the well-known Stefano Rizzi (7-5-6-5-5-11), who can count victories in the Melges 24 class, America's Cup, ocean races and more. In the provisional ranking list, he is the sixth, followed by Fabio Mazzetti (12-11-9-8-13-15) in tenth and by Harald Stuffer (10-15-14-9-10-16) in eleventh.

At the end of the races, when the mothies were coming back to the land, a GC32 closed a perfectly beautiful day, sailing in front of the Circolo Vela Torbole.
