Melges 32 Sailing Series - Team Synergy conquer the field in Gaeta


'2013 Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series Gaeta'    Pedro Martinez

At the 2013 Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series, from the moment that Valentin Zavadnikov's Team Synergy with tactician Tommaso Chieffi arrived on the Gulf of Gaeta, they commanded the event. As the final day of racing unfolded, Zavadnikov held off attacks from a combative, second place finisher Andrea Pozzi on Bombarda alongside of tactician Lorenzo Bressani to take the overall win.

Zavadnikov, in addition to Chieffi were accompanied by Anton Sergeev, Pavel Mshenski, Konstantin Besputin, Alexander Ekimov, Valeriy Zatsarinskiy and Filippo Ardito as crew. It was a first class event that in the end, separated the overall winner and the rest of the fleet by one point after a fully completed schedule of eight races.

Rounding out the top three was 2011 Series Champion Lanfranco Cirillo aboard Fantastica. Spain's Marc de Antonio's Bribon Movistar finished fourth, followed by Carlo Alberini's Calvi Network in fifth. Deneen Demourkas on Groovederci closed the event in sixth.

It was a very disappointing day for Edoardo Lupi on Torpyone and Edoardo Pavesio's Fra Martina and as they fell from top three positions overnight to end the event in seventh and eighth.
