2019 Melges 20 World League - European Division, Scarlino - Overall

by Melges 20 Eurpean Class Association 16 Jun 12:53 PDT 14-16 June 2019

The third European event of the Melges 20 World League 2019 came to an end with the success of Russian Bogatyrs of Igor Rytov on the race course of Club Nautico Scarlino.

The victory for the Russian team, second out of three events completed so far in Europe (after the success in Villasimius) is the result of an absolutely dominant performance that has won the resistance of the opponents since the very beginning; Russian Bogatyrs had set the pace already on the Garmin Day, warm up day with three races sailed last Friday.

When it came to racing for the overall ranking, valid also for the Melges World League standings, Russian Bogatyrs responded with three first places in the three races held yesterday during the Quantum Sails Day.

Today Russian Bogatyrs only had to control the possible reactions of the opponents. Today's North Sails Day was therefore decisive to define the remaining steps of the podium, to sign the bullets of the day and to give the name to the "boat of the day".

The three races of today were won by three different teams in which there is a lot of Italy. Brontolo Racing by Filippo Pacinotti (with Manuel Weiller on tactics) wins race number 4, Franco Loro Piana's Sease (assisted by Matteo Ivaldi) the fifth regatta, while the last bullet in the series at Marina di Scarlino bears the mark of the reigning World Champion, Stig by Alessandro Rombelli (the tactician was the American Victor Diaz de Leon).

Sease is therefore the best on the special North Sails Day ranking.

The final podium of this act sees, behind Russian Bogatyrs (pt. 14) an extraordinary Siderval (pt. 20) of Marco Giannini, Corinthian team that gets with this second step of the podium his best career result in a Melges 20 event. Third place for Stig of Alessandro Rombelli (pt. 27). The top five is completed by Pierluigi Giannattasio's Argentinian Boogie (pt. 30) and Vladimir Prosikhin's Russian Nika (pt. 33).

With the success in the Tuscan event, Russian Bogatyrs consolidates its leadership in the world ranking. The Melges 20 fleet is now heading to the Riva del Garda, where will race from 14 to 17 July for the fourth event of the European series.
