Congratulations are in full order for 2012 Champion Dario Levi aboard Fremito D'Arja with tactician Andrea Casale and crew Stefano Lagi, who seemed at ease with the every conditions dealt this past weekend. Levi proudly joins the ranks of the elite Gold Cup ring of champions - Francesco Farneti (2010) and Alessandro Rombelli (2011).

Levi's team has been together for a couple of seasons, and in 2012 they never missed an event, and with each performance, strengthened their skills, improved their boat handling and gained the necessary speed and experience required to win such a marquee title.
