A Snipe Story

After the regatta in San Remo, I decided to still spend some time with Nadia and Marie in beautiful Italy. 
We stationed ourselves with the Camper in Lugano (CH), and did a nostalgic trip to Lago Maggiore and ended up in Lago Orta.

18annifaWhen we use to live in Luzern we went sailing in Italy on those lakes, also became Lake Champion, all this, 18 years ago, they use to have big fleets and it was really fun, we had many friends, like Conneli, Huber, Renzo, Matteo, ect…
The first club we visited was in Laveno, but all was dead, no more club, very sad to see. We decided to take the ferry to Verbania and went to Lago Orta, first we past the Club in Omegna, visit the beautiful Village Orta and stopped in the club in Orta.Mishkin
Something very sad happened, we saw our old beautiful Snipe “Mishkin”, I gave the  name to our boat to the most beautiful dancing role I danced myself, and that was Prince Mishkin, in the Roman of Dostojewski “The Idiot” .
With this boat I won with my brother Tom, the Italian Championship in Lake Garda, just one point before Enrico Michel.
But how sad to see the boat lying on his deck getting rotten. Please Maurizio, when you read this, take care for my boat.
