Vele d’Epoca di Imperia – First the wave, then the breeze

Also adding to the sizzle was the weather, which had the fleet sailing in very different conditions, from the formed wave of the beginning to the breezes of the end with a final day of racing kissed by winds between 9 and 12 knots and a nearly calm sea

Seeing these boats face the formed sea, as they did at the start of the Vele d’Epoca d’Imperia 2022, with the grace of yachting of yesteryear, is something that even for today’s ever-faster-moving sailing remains indispensable.
