The 45th Winter Championship of Anzio-Nettuno is organized by the Circolo della Vela of Rome, by the Reale Circolo Canottieri Tevere Remo, and by the Italian Naval League of Anzio. The sailing is taking place from the Nettuno Yacht Club off a prominent cape on the shores of the Mediterranean, southwest of Rome. The event is a series divided into five weekends, one a month (16 and 17 November, 14 and 15 December, 18 and 19 January, 15 and 16 February, 29 February and 1 March). The second weekend welcomed the Roman J/24 crews with a nice Sirocco wind around 15 knots with a rolling cross-swell. Chairman of the NYC RC, Mario de Grenet, was able to run two good long races for the fleet. The day was dominated by ITA 428 PELLE ROSSA skippered by Gianni Riccobono. Their two bullets enabled them to climb up to third place in the series standings. Second in both races was Luca Silvestri’s ITA 458 ENJOY 2. As a result, they now lead the overall ranking after four races. After starting strong in the first weekend with two bullets, Paolo Cecamore’s ITA 447 PELLE NERA added a 7-5 in the second weekend to drop into second place overall. Currently sitting in fourth position is ITA 399 MOLLA skippered by Massimo d’Eramo. They are followed by ITA 487 AMERICAN PASSAGE SAILED by Rome J/24 Fleet Captain Paolo Rinaldi.
