Today begins the second round of the newly-launched EUROSAF Champions Cup 2015 with participants from 55 nations and 5 continents (among them El Salvador or Bahrain). Top attention have above all the two Laser fleets. All Olympic classes are present, except the Finns, as their European Championship begins in Split CRO on Saturday. The variable weather forecast does not favor the 'Lake Garda wind-machine', as the announced rain will hinder the filling in of the afternoon thermal Ora breeze.
All entry lists and the official preview.

The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has announced the 22 sports that will be on the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games programme, the list does not include sailing, as there has only been a limited number of countries participating in the past.
ISAF is extremely disappointed to receive this news from the IPC, as at the London 2012 Paralympic Games, 23 nations from four continents were represented across the three Paralympic sailing events. Every effort will be made to reinstate sailing to the Paralympic Games. The report.
