Italy claims most number of International Regattas organised

An analysis done by Fraglia Vela Riva's sport's director Andrea Camin, on the regattas in the ISAF calender, from September 2011 to September 2012, showed that Italy organised the most regattas in the world with 82 events. In comparison France had 67, the USA 50, Spain 33 and Britain 24. This means that 13.78% of the events in the Isaf calender were organised in Italy compared with 11.26% in France, 8.4% in the US and 4.03% in Britain.

Analysing figures for organising clubs showed that Fraglia Vela Riva was the first sailing club in the world with a total of 16 events compared with 12 from Yacht Club,Argentina and 7 from Società des Regatès Rochelaises (La Rochelle- France) and Abu Dhabi Yacht Club.

The media release ends - In addition to the 100 days of regattas, we are left with the satisfaction and conviction of knowing that every single participant who came to Riva del Garda, took home a memory that will remain with them for years to come - which I know many will echo . . .
