Update from Italian Flying Dutchman Class Association 5 (1)

The Italian Flying Dutchman class association is pleased to inform you that, on September 18 2020, the new Executive Council of the class was elected at the annual assembly of the class members.

The new president is Eric Deleu, a Belgian national, living in Rome, the vice president will be Nicola De Castro and the secretary Luigi Macci, reconfirmed in his third position.

The Italian Flying Dutchman class association would like to thank the former Executive Council for the extraordinary work accomplished. A big applause to Fulvio Colletti, true pillar of the class to whom the honorary presidency has been proposed and to Rinaldo Rinaldi whose commitment will continue both as a delegate in zone II and internationally as Vice-president for the organization of the World and European Championships .

Marina Price Regatta 5 (1)

Dear Marina-Price competitors!
It came to my attention that there is some concern about next weeks Marina Price Regatta at the Circolo Vela Torbole as there will be a very
big Optimist Regatta on the same days as the Marina Price organised by the Fraglia Vela Riva and the Arco sailing club.
These concerns were twofold: first question is how many Optimists can we expect on the Club terrain and the second question is how will things go on
the water.
After an extensive phone-call with Giulia Grosselli the regatta coordinator I believe that we will have a good regatta at the CVT for the following reasons:
There will be no other Optimists located at the Club for this regatta outside of the actual members of the Club.
On the water there will be a very clear separation of the race courses for the Optimist regatta and the Marina Price regatta in a notherly part (Optimist)
and a southerly part (FD and Contender). There will be no interference in the courses what so ever. Even if we want to make a morning race this will be possible as we will be able to go down south far enough. There is permission now to place any mark where we want it (not like last year).
So I hope this information takes away the existing concerns and we will all see each other on the beautiful Lago di Garda with good winds and weather.
Kind regards
Peter van Koppen
President IFDCO
