Melges 32 Sailing Series - All set for Naples action

'Mascalzone Latino in action'    ©JOY | IM32CA

A fleet of 13 Melges 32 teams are in attendance and all set to line up for the opening act of the 2014 Audi Tron Sailing Series, organized and managed by B.Plan Sport & Events (BPSE) in collaboration with Melges Europe.

Hosted by the Comitato Grande Vela, the fleet will be fighting hard over eight races to collect the first points of the season starting this Friday and concluding on Sunday, in front of the Naples shoreline under a predicted mild breeze.

If we look at the entry list, we can have a clear idea of the stunning level of this headline event. The 'masters of the house' Mascalzone Latino, helmed by Vincenzo Onorato will be racing with 2-time olympic silver medalist Nick Rogers (Athens, 2004 and Beijing, 2008). A few other olympic giants will be challenging aboard Filippo Pacinotti's Brontolo, together with a very skilfull team as they rely on olympic sailor Gabrio Zandonà as tactician. Aboard Alessandro Rombelli's STIG we'll see another olympic champion - Freddy Loof, and on Giangiacomo Serena di Lapagio's G Spot, the crew features portuguese bronze medallist Hugo Rocha.

Malafemmena, Synergy and Celadrin Vitamina each one of them will have the skills of the Ivaldi brothers (Matteo, Michele and Francesco), all olympic champions for the first time together on a racing field.

Eduardo Lupi and Massimo Pessina's Torpyone will be presenting a totally renewed team racing with Lorenzo Bressani, while very little crew changes take place on the Riccardo Simoneschi's Audi Italia Sailing Team that are aboard the Audi e-tron of Mauro Mocchegiani, all relying heavily on the tactical skills of tactician Branko Brcin.

While in Naples, teams will be receiving Torqeedo electric outboards, this year's Audi tron Sailing Series innovation, making the first ever totally environmentally friendly sailing circuit. Crews will be also informed over the correct installation and usage of these technologically advanced German 'jewels'.

As in the past, the start of the Audi Tron Sailing Series means the return of the Audi test drives too. Anyone can demo the A3 g-tron, RS6 Avant, SQ5, and A1 SB Admired. For further details, please call 345.9585343, or e-mail (info@atton.it).
