    Vintage Yachting Games 2012, Lake Como, Italy

    With almost 3 times as many competitors as the 2008 edition the Vintage Yachting Games had their first races today. Eight of the Vintage Yachting Classes (Former Olympic) are present at the wonderful Lake Como from about 20 countries and 4 continents.With temperatures of about 28-30 centigrade and a 8-12 knots Southern wind all classes sailed 2 out of 9 races.

    The link to the past Olympic games is strong here in Italy.
    The photo’s on the facebook page show the athlete shuttle service during the 1960 Olympics and the official Vintage Yachting Games staff car.

    The races on Campo Alpha (5.5 Metre & Dragon) and Bravo (Europe Female, Europe Male and 
O-Jolle) started at 13:00 as planned. On campo Charlie (Flying Dutchman, Tempest and Soling) the wind became stable about 45 minutes later.

    Pictures of the event will follow tomorrow.
