3C Worlds

I was just looking on the UIM website and saw that this years 3C worlds has been moved from Sicily to Rome.

Any lads from here planning on going down?

Class 3S worlds are also on in Rome at the same time. Is class 3S the 4 litre boats? I hadn't heard of class 3S before..

6 litre

Nice

Are there many boats racing 6 litre these days?

Will the x-cats be there?

I imagen there will be quite a few italian 3s boats there. I would say dont even bother with a 3c mono hull. Their multi hulls are so much faster. Then if the weather is against them they will cancel. It has happened before and as roy's not there defending it will go to the italians on home ground.
