Kiss, who is currently running second in the 2012 USA Sailing Series Standings, will encounter stiff competition from the likes of Paul Reilly on Red Sky, Russell Lucas’ Shimmer and Marc Hollerbach’s Fu.

Simultaneously, the Audi Melges 20 Sailing Series 2012 commences this weekend in Marina di Loano, Italy. As many as twenty-one teams are expected to race and are set to enjoy some amazing social events in one of Italy’s most luxurious yachting locations.
