Ravenna Yacht Club Winter Championship 2012-13
Dalmazia Dock, towards Casalborsetti - Marina di Ravenna (Ra)
Date: November 18th 2012 - February 24th 2013
Event timetable: from 10.30am
The 31st Winter Championship, organised by the Ravenna Yacht Club, will feature over 140 boats and will follow the traditional format of yacht championships - three groups (ORC, Open and White Sail) will set off in three waves five minutes apart, following two different routes.
The ORC and Open boats will head north and complete two windward legs, whilst the white sails will head south, with only one windward leg in their route.
For the first time, this winter two dates have been set aside in March (10th and 17th), when the wind is normally favourable, in case poor weather prevents any of the seven regattas from going ahead. As well as the back-up dates, the championship will no longer feature a Techno class as part of the white sails’ group. Instead, the Open Senza has been formed, which will race with the Open group (yellow). This offers the chance to race on a longer course than the white sails. The regatta will be followed as usual by traditional Romagna cuisine for everyone involved.
And there’s more! On Wednesday 26th December, don’t miss the festive La Veleggiata di Santo Stefano (Santo Stefano Sailing)
