Allen RS Feva Worlds 2013
Grosseto, Tuscany, Italy

173 RS Fevas are descending on Marina di Grosseto for the Allen RS Feva World Championships. Championship racing starts on Monday 22 July with last races and prize giving on Friday 26 July.
The reigning World Champions, Leonardo Stocchero and Gianluca Virgenti (ITA), are back to try and become the first to successfully defend their title (no pressure there then!). The question is whether home advantage will be significant. If they do manage a successful defence then they will have deserved every plaudit they get.

Lining up against them is the might of the UK RYA Junior squad programme and the ever improving challenge from the Netherlands. The Czechs in their first full season of RS Feva sailing are bringing perhaps the largest percentage of their home fleet and will be hoping to make a dent on the overall results.

In total there will be 14 nations present (CAN, CZE, EST, GBR, GER, IRL, ITA, LTU, MLT, NED, NOR, RUS, SWE and SUI). Racing will be in three fleets for the first two days and thereafter in Gold, Silver and Bronze fleets.

The venue has been well tested with the F18 Worlds which finished there last week, so all systems are go. Updates and photos will be available daily via the Class Worlds website. The Twitter feed is at #rsfevaworlds. Full manufacturer support will be available on site.
