Twinning between Optimist Team USA and the Optimist team of Fraglia Vela Riva.

With only two days to go before the start of the Garda Optimist Meeting (24th- 27th March), families, coaches and teams from all over Europe continue to arrive at Fraglia Vela Riva with trucks and vans neatly loaded with little Optimists, while those coming from further afield will  be able to charter the boats made available by the organisation (30 countries represented). The area has been full of people since the weekend with ,what can only be described as exceptional weather with the wind and sunshine giving its best. This Guinness World record event is also an opportunity to socialise with the other teams from around the globe which are gradually filling  Riva del Garda, Trentino. On Monday evening there was a lovely moment of sporting friendship between the  Optimist teams of Fraglia Vela Riva and Team USA who are here for the Optimist Meeting. There was an exchange of pennants and signatures on the Optimist flag which was made official by the secretary of the Optimist Class Italia Norberto Foletti and Club President Giancarlo Mirandola. This is a stars and stripes friendship which our boys and girls will treasure for a long time to come as will the American team who take home  “a little piece Italian hospitality and beauty”.
