Local Boys Take the Lead

sept11 49ereuro sLocal sailors Jacopo Plazzi and Umberto Molineris (ITA) used local knowledge and years spent on Lake Garda to move into the lead for the 49er European Championship.  With an impending front approaching, the winds were light for Garda standards, with 8-10 knots maximum for the day.  Posting a 1-3-3 for the day, Plazzi commented “ We were speedy upwind and doing simple things. We´re happy to be sailing here in our home waters.“  He further commented to expect “strong winds from the north and bad weather“ for tomorrow´s racing, but fully expects to be out on the water racing.
