Melges 32 Virgin Islands Sailing Series Champion announced


'Melges 32 Virgin Islands Sailing Series, Caribbean Championship 2013'    JOY - International Melges 32 Class Association ©

The first ever OtterBox® Melges 32 Virgin Island Sailing Series (M32VISS) championship went to Roberto Tomasini Grinover aboard Robertissima. Caribbean Champion Tomasini Grinover was accompanied by tactician Vasco Vascotto and crew comprised of Gaetano Figlia di Granara, Giovanni Cassinari, Gunnar Bahr, Armin Raderbauer, Pablo Torrado and Nevio Sabadin.

Second overall in the Series was Dalton DeVos on Delta with tactician Jonathan McKee, followed by Ryan DeVos with Ed Baird as tactician on Volpe in third.

The last day of racing concluded in the British Virgin Islands under simply gorgeous conditions. A beautiful 8-10 knots held steady for the teams to squeeze in four final races, in which the youngest DeVos, Dalton claimed bullets in Race Four and Seven. Other race winners included the BVI's own Mark Plaxton on INTAC who ended up in third overall at the event. Alex Jackson's Leenabarca championed Race Five.

Endless Thanks: The list is long, but it has to be said. PRO Hank Stuart and the IM32CA partnership with the Royal BVI Yacht Club was a match made in racing heaven. Sheer perfection on the course enabled racers to focus on going fast, so a huge round of thanks to the Race Committee for an impeccable past three days of racing. A very special thanks to Peter Island Resort and Spa and their brilliant staff for making the host venue the absolute best!

On behalf of the IM32CA, special thanks to Tom Geisler as his very steady hand at the helm of the Volpe tender, as without his talents the beautiful photos and media coverage of the event would not have been possible!
