Alassio Dragon Week

Post by eziogianni » Sun Apr 10, 2011 4:44 pm

A sunny, summery day blessed all the north of Italy as a high pressure system and early morning fogs did not allow for the midday wind to pick up. Thus, the Alassio Dragon Week ended with the last day with no wind. No wind no race! After five very tactical races, yesterday's results remained unchanged and confirmed Paolo Manzoni as the winner of this second edition, while Beppe Duca and Gerard Blanc shared the podium.
