International Melges 20 World Championship at Coconut Grove Sailing Club - Day 3

by Hannah Noll 6 Apr 18:40 PDT 4 -7 April 2019

There is no doubt that the story of the day today at the Melges 20 World Championship is the ultra-tight racing that is ever-present in the fleet. Three days of racing are complete, and each day has resulted in a different leader. With two races left for tomorrow, who will take the Melges 20 World Championship crown?

Today, Alessandro Rombelli and his STIG team of Francesco Bruni, Giorgio Tortarolo, and Tea Faoro lead the pack of Melges 20s from nine different nations. Fleet newcomer from Colorado, Sam Barron-Fox won the first race of the day a great showing and a perfect warm welcome to the Melges 20 fleet for the BOO-FU team.

Tonight we party! Montys Raw Bar, Miami sailors staple, is the location for the final celebration of the Melges 20 World Championship. Each day, teams battle it out on the race course then come together afterward over food and drinks. The camaraderie and longterm friendship among sailors are a significant part of what makes the Melges 20 Class so special.

Ten points separate the top four teams of STIG, Kuai, Russian Bogatyrs, and Heartbreaker; the stage is set for a great showdown on Biscayne Bay tomorrow.
