Sail-World.com : Audi Sailing Series Act 4 - Incredible races on Day 1
Audi Sailing Series Act 4 - Incredible races on Day 1


'Audi Sailing Series'    Joy Dunigan

Hosted by Circolo Vela Torbole, the fourth act of the 2013 Audi Sailing Series commenced with four incredible races giving teams the hope and possibility of a discard upon the completion of Sunday's scheduled heats. Lake Garda has exceeded the twenty-eight strong Audi Melges 20 fleet expectations in Torbole.

Commanding the lead is Achille Onorato aboard Mascalzone Latino, Jr. Onorato successfully led the racing, taking full advantage of the Ora wind. Seated second overall is Lauro Bonora's Camay, two points behind. Renato Vallivero's Audi Turnover was like a rocket to finish the day in third. Rounding out the top five is Richard Davies on Section 16 and Alessandro Rombelli's STIG in fourth and fifth.

Of the four races completed, each produced a new winner resulting in a very tight points spread for the top realm of the scoreboard. At least seven to eight teams have a shot at podium status. Congratulations to Vallivero for a fine win in Race One. Bonora felt the effects of a successful day winning Race Two. American Russ Lucas on Shimmer took top honors in Race Three. Giancarlo Capolino on Legionario won the fourth and final race of the day.

Racing is set to resume on Sunday with two additional races and the same forecasted conditions as today.

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.

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

What a wonderful worlds it will be
Now recognized by ISAF as an International Class, the Audi Melges 20 Class Association (IM20CA) is pleased to present its very first World Championship on December 11-14 at Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo Florida. The Notice of Race is now available and Online Registration is open. Ocean Reef is an exquisite venue offering the very best in yacht racing conditions and social atmosphere. It perfectly complements the Audi Melges 20's trademark attributes of sheer simplicity and sophistication. Ultimately, the 2013 World Championship will be the pinnacle event of the year for the class and the one design performance racing industry.
