Italians Giulia Conti and Francesca Clapcich won the silver medal at the European Open Championships 49er FX at Barcelona that ended April 16th, 2016, and adding another medal to their haul after the bronze won at the World Championships in Santander in 2014 and the golds both European and World won last year, not to mention the successes in the World Cup and theItalian Olympic Classes Championships.

The second place however could have been even better as the azzurre had a four point lead over the Danish couple Hansen and Salskov-Iversen (pictured) going into the race who eventually went on to claim the continental title.

It shows again what a brilliant team Conti-Clapcich make, jewels in the Italian National Sailing Team, and brings high hopes for the Olympic Games in Rio.
