Melges 24 European Sailing Series at Scarlino, Italy - Day 2

by IM24CA 20 Jul 2019 22:52 BST 7-9 June 2019

Day two of racing just came to the end in the Italian race course of Scarlino (Tuscany) and, with three more races completed, the head of the ranking of the fourth act of the Melges 24 European Sailing Series is unchanged: Maidollis by Gian Luca Perego keeps in fact leading the fleet with extremely consistent performances (2-1-6 today) and a net total of 10 points (the discard of the worst result of the series came into play today upon completion of the fifth race).

The second place of the ranking is for the World Champions onboard Altea by Andrea Racchelli, boat of the day in this second day in Scarlino, with excellent partial scores of 1-2-3; provisional bronze medal for another Italian crew, Melgina (3-8-1) by Paolo Brescia, winner of the third and last race of the day. Bombarda by Andrea Pozzi (9-6-2) is fourth with 24 points.

The Corinthian division sees a great comeback by Taki 4 of Marco Zammarchi, who climbs up to the fifth place of the overall ranking with 7-3-5 as daily results and becomes the new leader of the Corinthian fleet, where the second place is occupied by Arkanoè by Montura (10-9-7), seventh overall, and the third place is for Hungarian Seven-Five-Nine (8-13-4).

Races will resume tomorrow at 11.30, when we will discover who will be the winner of the fourth act of the Melges 24 European Sailing Series. Weather conditions should be similar to those of today, with breeze from 220-255 up to 10 knots.
