In the Audi Melges 20 Sailing Series in Torbole, Renato Vallivero's Audi Turnover has claimed the victory. Hosted by Circolo Vela Torbole, Vallivero and his team comprised of tactician Enrico Fonda and Marco Perazzo took advantage of the permanent Ora wind to gain the podium.

Vallivero won the event by a six point margin over Portoferraio Champion Alessandro Rombelli's STIG. Eight points further back, overnight leader Achille Onorato aboard Mascalzone Latino, Jr. finished in third. Completing the top five results is American Michael Kiss on Bacio, and Dario Levi's Fremito D'Arja.

In the overall Audi Sailing Series Ranking, Guido Miani's Out of Reach has been de-throned from his leadership position. After a very exciting Torbole, Rombelli now leads after twenty-one races with an 11-point gap over second place Onorato. Miani has fallen back to third, Francesco Farneti's ITA-157 is fourth and Giancarlo Capolino on Legionario is now fifth.

The fourth leg of the 2013 Audi Melges 20 Sailing Series is organized by B-Plan Sport&Events in full collaboration with the International Audi Melges 20 Class Association and Melges Europe has concluded.

Past Torbole, only one regatta remains in the Series. Happening on 29 August - September 1st, the very first Audi Melges 20 European Championship hosted by Yacht Club Porto Rotondo will take place in Porto Rotondo, Italy where many more teams will compete.
