Malcesine has the honour of hosting the Moth world championship this year, and I am very proud to see my son in law as a participant. The lake was stunning yesterday, just the right wind, and an impressive number of moths on the water (250 boats).  It is truly awe inspiring that the best sailors of the world have travelled to our lake to participate in this event: we saw Peter Burling the winner of the America’s Cup and the cream of the crop of in terms of Olympic sailors. The Moth is such a high tech boat that you really need the skills of an acrobat over and above being a top sailor! My nieces enjoyed a day in the sun and wind and cheered on their father.
