Trieste, May 12-13, 2018

Triestina della Vela will host the South European Championship - Sergio Michel Memorial Trophy

The regatta is valid for the Summer Circuit and for the Alpe Adria Region Series (Franz Joseph Cup)

Notice of Race available


The South European Championship trophy is named after Sergio Michel, class 1936, sailor forever for his sailing club S.V.O.C. of Monfalcone (Italy) , his birth town, winner of various nationals and internationals championships on different classes ( Snipe, Dinghy 12' and Dragon), author of the book "The Life of the snipe in Italy" (Alberto Perdisa editor) and manager of an important company.

The snipe was the boat he sailed more on, crewing the sailmaker Sergio Morin. In the foreword of his book he himself remembers that period fondly: "Sergio (Morin) had to make the boat go fast, to me the burden to think of anything else(training, tactic, different solutions etc.). We built a mutual trust who allowed us to move automatically on board, we didn't even need to talk."

Sergio Michel is still the most titled Italian crewman: with Morin he won 6 Italian Championship and he sailed at various International events too. He placed second at the European Master in 1993, crewing Giorgio Brezich. As helmsman of his son Enrico he placed third at the World Master in 2004.

When he passed away in 2008 many sailors of the Snipe Class remembered him with fond memories:

" Sergio was a sailor, a real champion, an amazing person, a great man" Alberto Perdisa ex Italian Secretary

"He couldn't stay without doing anything. He got retired and he immediately start working again writing the book which is his declaration of love to the sail and to the Snipe". Pietro Fantoni Commodoro SCIRA.

"For myself and Nadia he was a person we will never forget. Since over 20 years we know Sergio, he was always very engaged and willing to help everyone.

I remember last year in Cervia (Piada trophy – 2007 ndr) , I had myself a small problem and could not finish the races, I came back from hospital, and my boat was in the trailer and everything was packed by Sergio". Ben Van Cauwenbergh (Belgium)

The last but not least the words and memories of his son Enrico: "My father was my teacher. He taught me sailing and above all he taught me the respect for the opponents, all of them"

He was a passionate sailor, the sea was in his blood He was a very sharp technician interested in any kind of innovation of the boat. At the events he got always around the boats to look for something new which could inspire him. I miss him"
