Widening entries for Nacra 15 from 30 to 60Anke Haadsma
Within a few weeks, the maximum number of allowed entries was reached in the Nacra 15 class. The race committee has decided to widen the entries from 30 to 60. With a bigger fleet, the racing will be even more spectacular.
The registrants from the waiting list are now published at the entry list. The Nacra 15 has a very international character. Sailing teams from 13 different countries have already registered.
Dante Cittadini back after a golden year
Among these sailors, there’s the Argentinian couple Dante Cittadini & Mayla Muscia. Last year Cittadini was racing together with Teresa Romairone, they’ve had an incredible year. Started with the gold medal at the Dutch Youth Regatta and after that winning the most important regattas, including the World Championship and the Youth Olympic Games. This year he will be racing with Muscia.
From Germany we have four teams registered so far. Here we see some talented sailors like Silas Mühle (sailing with Levke Möller), he is a top level sailor with a 5th place at the recent Youth Olympic Games 2018. Anna Bart, sailing with Carl Christian Barth, has won the bronze medal at the 2018 EK Optimist in Scheveningen. Now she’s sailing the Nacra 15, a new class with a new teammate.
We still remember the Polish teams from last year, they both ended up in the top 10. Now they will definitely fight even harder for the podium spots. And so many more talented sailors in the Nacra 15 fleet from all over the world. Not to forget the Dutch sailors with Laila van der Meer and Bjarne Bouwer and many other talents.
