Summer: The Ravenna Sailing Club’s sailing school is back

Summer, time to sail, time to learn to do it at the sailing school of the Circolo Velico Ravennate. Beginning as tradition dictates with the closure of schools on June 6, the courses will continue until August 26: “There are ten planned courses – explains leader Daniela Rossi – They in June will be longer, given the weekly duration, while from July and thereafter the format will be weekly.Then, based on the students’ skills and time, the teaching staff will organize short, basic and intermediate courses, which will follow specific training programs.From 11 to 29 July, given at the same time as important sailing events, the school moves to Bagno Baloo, between Marina di Ravenna and Punta Marina, where we will surely maneuver using the canal to exit the boats, and where we will enjoy great visibility. ”

A capillary program needed to meet the over one hundred and fifty registration requests already received: a figure suggesting the overcoming of the two hundred units reached in 2021: “This summer, we have set ourselves as aims to repeat the results achieved last year, where we register registrations and above all a lot of enthusiasm among children and their families, this probably thanks to the results of Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli Team – explains Andrea Portoraro, CVR advisor with responsibility for the Sailing School – We is currently very satisfied: the first courses were all sold out, and it shows how Ravenna Sailing Club is valued for the high quality of the courses it offers “.

A staff of fifteen FIV instructors, seven aspiring instructors and as many young people in training support are waiting for the students.

The fleet of boats available to students is always large and has sixteen Optimists, two O-Pros, four RSFevas, three ILCA 4s, one Flying Junior, recently added to the fleet, two Trident 16 ‘ ere and, for the elderly, a Tom28.

A success created by the campaign promoted in the spring months, a campaign based on the VelaScuola FIV project, in which some instructors met 400 students from Ricci and Randi primary schools in Ravenna who had joined the initiative; on open days, when sixty children sailed for the first time; on participation in Bambini in Festa – Festa del CONI, a charity event organized in Ravenna’s public gardens by Round Table 11 Ravenna, and in which the main sports associations in Ravenna participated and on VelaDay, a national promotional day organized by the Italian Sailing Federation.

“In addition to imparting technical knowledge, the aim is to transfer values ​​to students such as sportsmanship, respect for opponents and environmental education – adds Daniela Rossi – The latter remains a fundamental issue, treated with awareness and professionalism from the Navy. Biologists in Cestha. A collaboration, one with this non-profit organization, which has lasted for several years. In fact, thanks to them, the sailing school of the Circolo Velico Ravennate was the first school to spend time on scientific communication “.

When we talk about environmental education, the Plastic Free awareness campaign continues in 2022: staff and students use water bottles that they can fill from a source of free chilled water, meals are served in biodegradable containers and train themselves for proper separate collection.

Activities carried out with proud determination gave the Ravenna Sailing Club permission from the Emilia Romagna region to use the logo # PlastfriER – Emilia-Romagna region 2030.

This summer’s stories will be back in vogue on September 11 in Marina di Ravenna with the legendary Panzavolta Trophy, a day of celebration and meeting between the sailing schools of the XI Zone, which will be attended by students who have never had competitive experiences, but who hopefully can they have them in the future.
