On day two of the 2013 Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series in Gaeta, Italy, the Race Committee took full advantage of the heated conditions to deliver three incredible races. As proof, each race presented a different winner. Lanfranco Cirillo's Fantastica took charge early to win Race One. Roberto Tomasini Grinover displayed his Robertissima might by winning Race Two, and Vincenzo Onorato's Mascalzone Latino championed the final race of the day.

Despite the various race winners, Valentin Zavadnikov at the helm of Team Synergy continues his firm grip on the lead after a great day of competition on the Gulf of Gaeta. On the eve of the final day of racing, the star-studded Russian team has a nine point advantage over a brilliant Edoardo Pavesio on Fra Martina in second overall - the fierce fighter of last year's great season finale, and a solid ten over third place finisher Edoardo Lupi's Torpyone.


The fourth to seventh place seated teams will battle for a potential spot on the podium. Amongst those in contention include Andrea Pozzi on Bombarda, Naofumi Kamei on Mamma Aiuto! and the great Carlo Alberini on his powerful Calvi Network Melges 32.

The 2013 Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series will be back in action tomorrow commencing at 11.00. Three final races are planned with a cut off start time of 14.30 Italy time.
