The Easter holidays marks the moment when the Techno 293 OD season kicks off seriously, and what better way to start than the European Championships, the first major International of the season, taking place in Cagliari on the southern coast of Sardinia from 17th to 23rd April.

With nearly 280 riders registered from 18 countries, the 2022 Championships is already looking like a classic vintage. There’s a good entry in all the categories, but as ever the biggest number is in the U17s with over 100 competitors entered. The Techno+ category, combining the U19s and the Open riders, is present alongside the U13s, U15s and U17s, adding something extra to the mix. There are over 50 registrations for Techno+! Despite the massive rise in popularity of foils, these entry numbers show that Techno 293 OD is as popular as ever with young riders, especially after 2 years of Covid restrictions! This success follows on from the first round of the Italian Championships at the beginning of April, which attracted over 200 riders.

South Sardinia is renowned for its great weather, usually moderate winds, warm temperatures and plenty of sunshine. So, good winds to all the entrants, wishing you a great racing week on this magnificent stretch of water.
