162 SAILORS COMPETE AT CAMPIONATO ITALIANO DI BARI 2019
The annual Federazione Italiana Vela Campionati Italiani Giovanili 2 was hosted in Bari, Italy with eighty-one 420 teams in the line-up from 6-9 September 2019.
Located on the Adriatic, Bari produced some superb race track conditions for the 81 teams who battled it out in two fleets across a 7 race series.
The leading two boats ended the Championship separated by just one point, as they matched each other virtually race by race, with victory going to Riccardo Sepe/Gabriele Centrone over Tommaso Cilli/Bruno Mantero. These two teams are regular front of fleet performers, rivals on the race track as they seek to outsmart each other.
The challenge for third place was between four teams, with the final podium spot going to Oscar Pousche/Luca Coslovich after their second place finish in the final race 7.
Top women's team were Irene Calici/Petra Gregori in 7th overall.
Up next in Italy is the 38th International Winter Criterium from 19-20 October 2019.
