Performance and Weather Conditions

The first day of racing, June 7, was characterized by steady, light south winds, allowing for 6 races for the Formula Kite and 4 races for the Wingfoil Racing class. On the second day, due to disturbances, the races were split between early afternoon and late evening, with a total of 4 races in the afternoon and another 2 in the evening. The third and final day saw a strong disturbance across northern Italy, permitting only two races and effectively keeping the rankings unchanged.

The impeccable organization by CKWI and Univela Sailing ensured a successful event, contributing to the promotion of Kiteboarding and Wingfoil at both national and international levels.
