Dear FD friends,
To remember his friend Bene Wiedemann, the Circolo Vela Cesenatico and the Italian FD class have decided to associate the “Alto Adriatico Trophy” with a Challenge named after him to commemorate the figure of Bene and his friendly relations with the Club and the Italian FD class. To honor the spirit of hospitality, the Club offers free registration to all foreign crews participating in the event.
The Italian Ministry of Health has issued a new ordinance regulating international travel under COVID-19, which is in effect from 16 May until 30 July 2021. A very good news is the removal of the quarantine requirement for travelers from EU and Schengen countries, Israel, and the UK. However, all persons entering Italy must present negative COVID-19 test results from the 48 hours prior to entering Italy.
We would be grateful if could share this message with the family of Bene Wiedemann and with all the FD sailors interested.
Please find attached the invitation to the Bene Wiedemann Challenge and the N.o.R.
Luigi, Nicola and Eric
Executive Committee of the Italian Flying Dutchman
