240 boats from twelve nations have entered for this year's Imperia Winter Regatta, taking place in Imperia, Italy from 8-11 December, an ISAF Grade 3 event for 470 men and women events.
On 5 December the registration term ended with the massive entry a great success, confirming the excellent job done over past years fixing IWR as one of the most popular winter events in Europe for the 420, 470, Laser and Laser Radial.
The biggest fleet is in the 420, with 130 boats, whilst 45 will be on the starting line for the 470s. 46 Lasers and Laser Radials will also line up with 21 L'Equipe which will alternate races and training in a youth scheme.
Now just a few days remain until the Opening Ceremony gets the event underway on 8 December.
