25 garbino knots inaugurate the Ballanti-Saiani Memorial
The first official event of the future iQFoil Olympic class at the Ballanti-Saiani Memorial is christened with 25 garbine knots: show, but also several rites for the younger the balance of the first day of races
At the Adriatic WInd Club Ravenna great organizational commitment for an event that is attracting the attention of the Italian Sailing Federation, present with national technicians Mauro Covre and Adriano Stella, as well as with the Technical Youth Director Alessandra Sensini and federal councillors Flavia Tartaglini and Donatello Mellina
Porto Corsini, (RA) – Start to say the least spectacular at the Memorial Ballanti Saiani, windsurfing event organized by adriatico wind club Ravenna, in Porto Corsini, on behalf of the Italian Sailing Federation and scheduled from Wednesday 5 Sun 9 may, with two events in succession. Wednesday and Thursday stage I stage of the National Circuit of the new Olympic class iQfoil, very first official national event screened in Paris 2024, where the speed of the flying boards requires special attention in compliance with the rules and in the choice of routes for safety purposes.
On the occasion of the morning coach meeting, during which there was the greeting of the President of the Circle Giovanni Forani, regulations and measures have been explained to ensure safety at sea. In addition, the only two women who have represented Italian Olympic windsurfing so far have intervened, Alessandra Sensini and Flavia Tartaglini, present at the event in their current role as technical youth director and federal councillor. Garbino up to 25 nodes, five challenging tests for seniors and 3 for under- 19 the balance sheet of this first day he saw in the water 47 athletes between senior and under 19.
Definitely tough conditions, that for the major category didn't give problems until the fifth test, moment when the less trained struggled to keep the violent gusts of wind. It was an exciting duel in the first positions in which, however, he dominated 4 times on 5 five tests the Swiss Elia Colombo (CVLugano, 19), that with 4 first and a second is currently in the lead ahead of the Gardesani brothers Nicolò and Jacopo Renna (Circolo Surf Torbole), second and third respectively. Fifteenth overall and before women the young Sofia Renna, who managed to regatta well despite the really challenging wind. (Click on chart to enlarge / desktop only)
For the youngest Under 19, with a separate start from the seniors and with "open" boards and sails that fall into the Formula Open Foil Under category 19 IVF, it was a very busy day and not easy, that forced many to withdraw: checking the foil boards with strong wind is not easy and many participants have yet to refine the technique to counteract the gusts that as today are often blown even beyond the 25 nodes.
And the Garbine,wind from the ground as well as the mistral blows in Cagliari or the pelèr on garda trentino, or the bora in Trieste, was well exploited by those who are evidently used to navigating in similar conditions: Federico Pilloni of WIndsurfing Club Cagliari leads with two firsts and a third, followed by Leonardo Tomasini of circolo Surf Torbole (2-3-1); third the Triestine Zeno Tarlao (Barcola Grignano Sailing Company, 3-2-4).
The fourth place in the provisional ranking Andrea Pontremoli is more detached (YCItaliano - Wikipedia). Excellent fifth overall the Cagliari maria maddalena spanu, before females. Adriatic Wind Club colour carrier Francesco Forani is in his none: after a nice quarter failed to tame the gusts of wind that went on increasing. Thursday another day dedicated to foil with forecasts that continue to give presence of sustained garbino. Meanwhile, the teams that will participate from Friday to Sunday in the Coppa Italia Techno are coming 293 – with 237 registered at the start – and the Formula Fin National Regatta&Foil.
