Class Manager Rob Weiland explains, "We should see that the coast between Piombino and Grossetto with renowned sailing marinas like Scarlino and Punta Ala offers a regular sea breeze revving up in the afternoon as the wide inland plains rapidly heat up in the Mediterranean sun. For that we need sun, in general a welcome component to have. As it is early in the year the breeze will not be at its strongest, but we should see good sailing each day. Mahón, Menorca is much more like Porto Cervo, this is Mistral territory. Once out of the harbour of Mahón it is open sea, so once the breeze kicks in, there are more waves than for instance in the Bay of Palma. Mahon will be a true test."
