Viareggio - Italy
Format -: 6 traditional
Weather - warm, light winds. Lovely.
Viareggio - Has the envieable reputation for having dreamy weather conditions - and again didn't disappoint this year. 4 Brits competed - Jay and Gill Butters, Martin Laslett, and Rob Russ, the most UK turnout for this event.
In all 39 competitors threw, and the now familiar top 3 took podium positions - namely Manu Schuetz, Frido Frost, and Alex Opri.
How did the brits do? well Martin threw a fab 91 in accuracy to take a new British record, but this amazing score was still only good enough for 6th on the beach.
Between the 4 throwers, an incredible 9 personal bests were thrown! Sigh.... You Italians need to come over here and throw in some proper weather. Perfect conditions is for girls.
All in all some excellent scores were obtained, see below for the overalls.
