Diary dates - Worlds Punta Ala : 3-10/9/22

The IACA committee has accepted the proposal of the "Associazione Italiana Catamarani Classe A" for a Worlds Championships to be held in Punta Ala, Tuscany, on 3-10 September 2022. Our Worlds 2015 held at the same place are in our memories as a great sailing event, and we look forward to go back to this great location in 2022.

I take this opportunity to thank the team behind this successful bid : Thomas Andrew Daddi, Stefano Sirri and Marco Gaeti, along with the crews of Centro Velica Punta Ala and Punta Ala Camp & Resort.

Although the boatpark chat was whispering of more mild breezes in autumn time, the Lake Garda wind machine was not shy in delivering the trademark conditions even at the end of the sailing season in the Northern hemisphere.
