Final day - 2017 Melges 20 World League International Melges 20 Class Association
Congratulations are in order for newly crowned 2017 Melges 20 World League, European Division Porto Venere Champion Vladimir Prosikhin aboard Nika, with tactician Michele Ivaldi and crew Giorgio Tortarolo. After two final races, Prosikhin crushed the competition with an overwhelming 16-point advantage to win the first European event of the season.

Australia's Rodney Jones on Cars 167 moved up a notch after cashing in a productive 7-1 daily scoreline placing him in the overall second place position. Alexander Novoselov's Victor completed the podium line-up in third.

All things changed for the Corinthian division on the final day in Porto Venere. Emanuele Savoini sailing Evinrude and his team that also included Elonora Colucci, Marco Giannini and Enizio Savoini stole the lead from Marina Kaverzina sailing Marussia. Johannes Lind-Widestam at the helm of Intermezzo rounded out the top three.
