Audi Sailing Series, day one in Naples Italy. A variety of conditions were enjoyed by the 22 participating Melges 32's; from a light five to six knot breeze at the start to a pleasant 10-15 knots, enabling four races to be completed.

Paolo Masserdoti helming Vincenzo Onorato’s Mascalzone Latino and tactician Francesco Bruni currently leads, special thanks to a consistent performance score line of 4-5-5-5. In second overall is Mauro Mocchegiani aboard Rush Diletta with Matteo Ivaldi calling tactics. Reigning World Champion Luca Lalli helming B-Lin Sailing.com with faithful tactician Lorenzo Bressani is third.

'It has been a very positive day' said Bruni. 'Being able to keep all top five finishes is what helped us most. The Mediterranean fleet, as expected, is very competitive. I think that although we have sailed very little in this class, we've done well, but there is still much room for improvement. I honestly did not think that we would do this well. We had to call in Paolo at the last minute to replace Vincenzo, and he's never sailed a Melges 32 before.'

Lalli's B-Lin Sailing won the first race of the day, followed by Edoardo Pavesio on Fra Martina in second, and Filippo Pacinotti on Brontolo was third.

American John Kilroy on Samba Pa Ti, with Nathan Wilmot on tactics dominated races two and three. Mocchegiani pulled off a second place finish in race two, while Lanfranco Cirillo on Fantastica took second in race three.

Respectively, Carlo Perrone’s Atlantica 19 and European Fleet President Carlo Alberini on Calvi Network enjoyed third place finishes in races two and three.

The last of the race of the day went to Edoardo Lupi on Torpyone with Branko Brcin on tactics. Alessio Marinelli on Audi Fratelli Giacomel placed second, and Ferdinando Battistella on Cervo Y Sobrinos was third.

Be sure to check out the 2011 Audi Sailing Series YouTube Channel as interviews with Francesco Bruni, Matteo Ivaldi, Luca Lalli and Edoardo Lupi are all now online.

Sunday’s racing is scheduled to begin at 1030.
