When the Italian National Secretary, Francesco Fontana, asked for my free time to spend measuring sails at the next Worlds, I answered that I would have liked to be there for the Junior Worlds, knowing and considering my passion for improve opportunities and possibilities of young athletes; for me it would be, finally, the opportunity to meet the chief measurer Antonio Espada and reach more knowledge into the Class rules, met seven years ago.

 

In talamone, I measured 77 sails of the 36 boats enrolled and some of them wanted measure or simply check other sails measured in other times.
Generally, I found good sails, well designed and well assembled, able to be durables for much time.

Thinking about the championship, I want to thank all the junior athletes (we need to do it) who have demostrated good education and good relations with all meaurers and me, helping the understanding when I showed troubles (few troubles) linked to their sails.

It was a good experiences for the Italian Snipe Class, not only for me.
