Save the date
Compagnia della Vela and CDV Young Members group has organised the 2K Team Race Invitational Venice event that will be held from 4th to 6th November 2016.
11 Crews will compete in Duvetica Elan 210 keelboats in 2 on 2 team races. Compagnia della Vela will field its 405 CDV Sailing Team. Compagnia della Vela and the CDV Young Members group, the youthful spirit of Compagnia della Vela of Venice, have organised the 2K Team Race Invitational Venice regatta that will be held from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th November as part of an international 2K Team Racing tour in which some of the most important yacht clubs in Europe will participate.
This is the first time that Compagnia della Vela has organised and taken part in a regatta of the tour, even if the format of the event (2 on 2 team race) has already been tried and tested in the past with the two Dragons in Venice events. The event will end on Sunday and the races will take place in the stretch of water in front of Lido Alberoni. Venice is the sixth leg of the tour after Athens, Scarlino, Rome, Gaeta and Hamburg. 11 Teams have registered to partake, each consisting of 8 members (88 yachtsmen/women in total) of which not more than 50% plus one can be of the same gender (gender equality).
The event format consists of many mini regattas (sprint races) during which two teams, each consisting of two boats with 4 crew members from two different yacht clubs, will compete. The race will be won by the team whose boat wasn’t the fourth one to pass the finishing line. The Venice regatta is part of the 2016 tour and is a Grade 2 event (in accordance with 2K grading criteria) i.e. a Top International Event. The latest ranking sees the DMTRA team (Dutch Match & Team Racing Association) in lead position. The eleven teams will compete on the Compagnia della Vela’s fleet of eight Duvetica Elan 210 keelboats. In addition to the home crew, the 405 CDV Sailing Team, the following teams will also compete in the event: Royal Yacht Squadron (Gbr), Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, Royal Cork Yacht Club (Irl), Serpentine Racing (Gbr), Bavaria (Ger), DMTRA (Ned), Yacht Club Costa Olanda (Ned/Ita), Royal Thames Yacht Club (Gbr), Rome Racing Team (Ita), Gamla Stan Yacht Club (Swe).
The Compagnia della Vela team will be made up of Giovanni Saccomani, Nicolò Zanchi, Salvatore Eulisse, Alessandro Banci, Barbara Bonini, Giulia Sent, Jacopo Rizzi and Antonia Lembcke. The Company has chosen put the younger members, who are the future of our sailing club, alongside highly experienced yachtsmen/women (Banci, Eulisse, Bonini). The partners and sponsors of the regatta that have made it all possible are: Carlo Moretti, who has provided the glass awards that will be presented to the winners of the leg; Duvetica, that has provided the Elan 210 boats; Armare Ropes that has supplied the rigging and Alilaguna that has contributed by offering a discount on the rental of the support boat.
