Hopefully nobody was injured. This is really sad news, there a anyhow not enough Aeros available. Will the charter of boats for the DUTCH Open be affected?

SAD NEWS - from Maccagno, Lago Maggiore, ITA 

A thunderstorm of 40-50 knots destroyed most boats at UVM Maccagno, with trees falling on the dinghy park. About 20- 30 boats were damaged including the RS Aero fleet there. A keelboat sank and roofs and walls came down in the town.

Hopefully, despite the expense and trouble, a phoenix may just rise from the ashes as there were also a lot of neglected and unused boats there too.

We look forward to returning to Maccagno again next June for our 3rd International RS Aero Regatta there and with the event continuing to go from strength to strength plans are to add another day of racing too.
