Loot for the Circolo Surf Torbole with its young athletes: hat-trick with victories in the youth category, junior and senior female, respectively with Manolo Modena, Leonardo Tomasini and Sofia Renna
Nago-Torbole (TN) - In Torbole, on Garda Trentino, After 19 tests ended the Formula Foil World Championship, event organized by Circolo Surf Torbole in collaboration with the IWA International class, Italian Sailing Federation and Garda Trentino Vela Consortium.
The first days were full of strong winds, while the finale was characterized by thunderstorms in the area, who first alerted the organizers, reducing the number of races on Tuesday and then bringing back north wind in the morning, although of rather mild intensity, but enough to finish on the last day of competitions at least one test with 13-16 knots of wind, which subsequently fell suddenly.
After a Championship always run as a leader, the French Nicolas Goyard confirmed himself as world champion, now undisputed champion among iQFoil, PWA and Formula Foil, after winning practically all the most important regattas of the specialty in the last two years. Nicolas, with 11 WINS over 19 regate, left 6 points behind brother Thomas, Olympic silver in Tokyo and in fast recovery in the preparation in the foil, from the previous RS Olympic table:X. Third step of the senior podium for the Swiss Elia Colombo, who managed to beat the Dutchman Luuc Van Opzeeland in the final.

As for the Youth category satisfaction and certainly excellent signals from the two athletes of the Circolo Surf Torbole Manolo Modena and Jacopo Gavioli, first and second youth respectively (as well as iQFoil overall) and above all sixth and eighth in the overall ranking, despite racing with youth board and smaller sail than seniors. Third place under 20 the Slovak Robin Kubin. Spanish victory in the master category with Fernando Del Cerro; victory in the grand master category of the Polish Pawel Dittrich. Sofia Renna won the women's category by winning the Formula Foil world title, ahead of Linda Oprandi and Czech Jana Slatvova respectively.
With 19 WINS over 19 regattas the athlete of the Circolo Surf Torbole Leonardo Tomasini has won the Championship in the Junior category (under 17), winning a more than deserved title. Behind him the other two club mates Mattia Saoncella and Valentino Blewett, who in the last three days have found in the Swiss Robin Zeley a strong opponent.
The other athlete of the Circolo Surf Torbole Anna Polettini won among the girls. Also awarded were the juniors who raced with board and youth iQFoil sail: in this division victory of Valentino Blewett (Circolo Surf Torbole), according to Luca Barletta (Adriatico Wind Club Ravenna) and third Giulio Orlandi (SEF Stamura-Ancona).
The President of the Circolo Surf Torbole Armando Bronzes:"A good Championship closes, which offered strong wind conditions, but also lighter as in the last two days, giving everyone the opportunity to express themselves at their best.
Nineteen regattas are a nice result; the organization is well coordinated with the International class, the Regatta Committee and Jury of the Italian Sailing Federation.
I am also very satisfied with the result of the Circolo Surf Torbole team, that in a few months has made an almost unexpected improvement with the foil boards, winning the youth and junior categories, as well as senior female. Congratulations to all the staff, which holds high the name of the Circolo Surf Torbole!”
