Accomodation should be booked very early. This is a beautiful place, with thermic wind conditions like Lake Garda and flat water making it good for foiling.
Even without the sun, a good breeze is possible when the gradient wind is blowing from the north west to north into the pass like out of a nozzle!
Congratulations to our fellow 'A' Cat sailors, Pete Burling, Blaire Tuke and our own class total legend, Mr Glenn Ashby! Sailing their ETNZ AC75, they beat off a very strong and ruthless challenge from the Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli team, with Jimmy Spithill at the helm of the Italian challenger of record.
The new IACA Auditor is to be French Association President Denis Brendel. Denis was a former executive director of the public administration. He studied at the Faculty of Economics of Aix en Provence. His job was to set up contracts with the state and mobilize european programs. We are in competent hands and he will be a worthy successor to Graeme Harbour, to whom we all owe a debt of gratitude to for doing this important but unrecognised role. We wish Denis all the best!

Dear presidents of National Associations, dear sailors, dear friends,
The pandemic has done much damage to our societies and as every other organisation, the IACA constantly tries to adapt to the situation. Trying to guess the future makes no sense, we can only hope that the vaccines and health systems will help to solve this world-wide problem.
