Published on October 27th, 2016
Torbole, Italy (October 27, 2016) – A busy fourth day of races at the Techno 293 and Techno 293 Plus World Championships with a shining sun and beautiful 14 knotes south wind, the well known Ora of the northern Garda Lake. Finals started with very intensive but funny races for competitors.
Among Under 17 girls, the power is still Italian with the combination Speciale-Schirru; wonderful competition among Under 17 boys as well as Under 15: Marta Monge goes up again to fourth place. A Techno Plus Italian podium with Cangemi and Gallo, respectively first and second place.
The Circolo Surf Torbole has liven up early this morning, with first finals with the fleets splitted into Gold and Silver ones. Finally the day has started with a shining sun and with a early but weak northern wind that complicates the end of first U-17 boys golden race.
But not for nothing is Garda Trentino called “wind machine”: at 13 pm the “Ora” started to blow well and Circolo Surf Torbole staff worked together with International Techno 293 Class, International Jury and Race Committee to do the best. Races courses ready for southern wind, priority has been given to Gold fleets to carry on with Silver ones of each category, U-17, U-15 and Plus.
After the first morning race, with a lot of disqualifications due to false-starts, the Gold fleet races again in the afternoon with 67 competitors qualified after the first 6 regattas. FRA 38 Tom Garandeau leads (1-4-3), 2nd american Geronimo Nores (20-1-11). Unfortunately bad news for the italians Nicoló and Riccardo Renna. Such a negative day but the fight is however still open; Nicolò is 3rd (17-2-32).
It’s always Italian supremacy in the U-17 girl class: Giorgia Speciale dominates with a series of first places, followed closely behind by her fellow countrywoman Schirru. Their advantage grows on Israeli pursuers: 1-1-2 today for Giorgia Speciale (SEF Stamura) and 3-2-1 for Schirru, 19 points away from the greek Divari.
Two races for U-15 Gold fleet and the usual podium: the Greek Kalpogiannakis at first place, 3 points away from the Israeli Zror and 5 points from the French Ghio.
Two Italians in the top ten: seventh place for the local Alessandro José Tomasi (LNI Riva del Garda – 5-3); always better for the european champion Edoardo Tanas (Fraglia Vela Malcesine) who is currently in ninth place with a third and a sixth in today races.
No division into fleets for U-15 girls category for the smaller number of competitors: at the top the French Gerandeau, 2 points away from the Israeli Geva and 4 points from Wing (Hong Kong) at third place.
Marta Monge (CN Loano) goes back again in fourth position, which is only 5 points from the podium. Matilde Faccio, of the same club, is instead at eleventh place.
