Italian Nationals 2011

We decided to have our nationals this year on Lake Como, home of the italian Laser 4000 fleet, really interesting place wher to sail with conditions that closely math the one of Malcesine (strong wind in the afternoon).
It was a challenge for the class because the iso class there is just starting, but the response was quite good, with 10 isos on the start line (john Mater representing UK with 1179).
5 races, Sun (I had my face and arms burned), winds in the range of 15-18 kts, good hospitality, it is worth having a thought about possible future international event...

We got a lot of interest from the local race committee, that invited us to a couple of events next year.... I hope this will trigger a new fleet to start.

From the races, 1 point of difference allowed the Gatti brother (1195) to overcome me (1200); well done for a team who is growing fast and putting a lot of effort in their improvement with the ISO.
the 3rd place in the standing was a close match, 3 teams with the same score after the first 3 races, only race 5 decided the standing (Paola and Michele, 3rd at that time, capsized allowing Roberto Molinari to come to the 3rd place)

Attached the full relult table.
