A lot of thunderstorms in the afternoon have ruined this day of racing again for the IFCA Youth and Master Slalom World Championships, which will end on Saturday at the Circolo Surf Torbole, on Garda Trentino. Even today, when in the early afternoon a pretty good-to-sail south wind seemed to be blowing, several storms approached from north and west, forcing the FIV race committees (ready to give the starting procedures for the B finals of Junior division) to head back to the harbor.
Saturday will be the last day of the competition and the schedule for the first possible start is set at 7:00 am for the Youth division (U-21), clearly hoping for a good north wind, which usually blows in the morning on Lake Garda. Only one race course will be then positioned and the athletes will try to compete their elimination races in this division order: Youth, Master, Junior and Girl. The organizers, together with the two FIV Presidents of the Race Committees, Claudio Alessandrello and Ezio Ferin, and all the technical staff – will try everything to give the opportunity to do other races, although the Championships with two eliminations closed are still valid.
If a third elimination for Youth and Master divisions will be accomplished, they will receive one discard which is really important for the final rankings. The Girls and Juniors already completed 3 eliminations and might start with the fourth one tomorrow. It will be sure an intense last day of this Championships, hoping that the waking up at dawn worth it.
In the meantime, the athlete of the Circolo Surf Torbole Nicolò Renna is the leader of the RS:X Youth World Championship held in France – it will end on Saturday
In the meantime, the Circolo Surf Torbole is also protagonist in France: its athlete Nicolò Renna is now leading the ranking of the RS:X Youth World Championship in Penmarch. The last three races with excellent results allowed him to perform a come back on the French Pianazza. On Saturday, a “medal race” final – which is worth twice – is scheduled: it will be a pulse-pounding conclusion for this Olympic Class RS:X Youth World Championship. The Italian team, with the FIV coach Mauro Covre, will be at the “medal race” final with two athletes in first place: next to Nicolò, there is also Giorgia Speciale, leading her division from the second day of racing with a large advantage (18 points).
