Sixteen teams of Optimist sailors made up of four sailors and one reserve have gathered in Venice for the XIX Trofeo Marto Rizzotti. Nine nations are represented with six regional Italian teams.
At 15.30 hours on Saturday May 7 the Round Robin of the XIX Trofeo Marco Rizzotti, currently being sailed in Venice, was completed. Good wind, stable in force and direction, has allowed the races to progress steadily.
The leading team at the end of the Round Robin is Germany with 14 points, having lost only one match with the regional team of Lombardy. Second is the Italian national team with 13 points (lost the matches with Germany and with Slovenia). Lombardy is in third place, and the leader among the Italian regional teams.
