Information - 26.04.2008 by Matti Muoniovaara
M. Muoniovaara wrote the results of Olympics 1960 (below) in this form. The sail letters were E-1 (Eusebio Bertrand, Jorge Marti & Juan A. Rague). Source: Rome XVII Olympics, Yachting concurrents, 5.5 m. I. C.
Dr. Luigi Lang writes that Dalgra sailed there under Spanish flag. Also the same thing is in the film from Cowes World 5.5m Championship 1998. Marina Carpaneda tells the same as Dr. Lang. In his document Dr. Lang does not mention at all that the Italian 5.5 Ciocca III I-18 sailed as P-18 (Portugal, Duarte & Fernando Bello, Julio Gorinho). He might not have seen the 1960 concurrent list. That’s why I write that E-1 is I-24.
