Rome (I-Newswire) April 18, 2012 - Yacht Club Bracciano Est (Rome location) has been assigned to be the sailing club for the Fireball European Championships 2012 which will hold races during the week of July 21-27, 2012.

The event was launched on June 19 2011 in Sligo, Ireland, during the opening of the World Championship.The presentation was made by President of the YCBE, Armando Cattaneo, who arrived there for the occasion, along with Francois Schluchter - International Commodore and Maja Suter - European Commodore. The evening was opened by a screening of the attractive promotional film, produced by the italian fireball sailor, Federico Martucci - in private life he works as a cameraman and it shows! - and was followed by an aperitif with cheese and Italian wines offered by the YCBE and Fireball Italian Association.

The Fireball itself has been captivating the public attention by the light structure and manageability in sailing (requires only two people and a trapezoid) especially in English-speaking countries where is widely known. Therefore, races can be organized at national and international level. Thanks to European and World Fireball Championships, everybody can watch and enjoy these races which are delightful to the professionals as well as to the amateurs.

As Armando Cattaneo, President of YCBE and Chairman of the organizing committee, mentioned earlier, this event will be international in nature, since the Bracciano lake will see several crews from different countries like Ireland, UK, Slovenia, Belgium, Australia and Canada racing on its waters. The favorable location not only for the wind power but also for the historical setting, will offer to the public an unforgettable experience which will attract many.

Yacht Club Bracciano Est was founded in 1973 and it is one of the sailing clubs of the IVth Zone FIV with the longer history in the sport of sailing having hosted many European and World Championships since 2001 with the participation of about 90 crews from all over the world.
