Sailing boats on San Ruffino Lake, Amandola

Unlike last year, the weather for the second edition of "Le Vele di San Ruffino" ("The Sails of San Ruffino"), which took place on 24 and 25 April, was splendid. Plenty of wind for the competitors sailing their Snipe class dinghies and lots of sunshine for the spectators.


Along the shore of the lake was the CNA tent with artisans selling handmade hats, leather bags decorated with Swarovski crystals and paintings by a local Amandolese artist.


Tomeo fantasy bags had a stall as did Giorgio our local Venetian masseur, who was giving free massages; Agostina selling cheeses for Azienda Agricola Fontegranne; the ladies from Monte San Martino selling homemade biscuits; Pasquale Palazzo selling his aloe vera creams and name just a few.


Lunch was available at Osteria del Lago and Il Vecchio Moro or, for those wanting something more casual, there was the option of porchetta in a roll and a beer.
