2019 Melges 20 European Championship - Day 1

by Melges World League 12 Sep 07:07 PDT 11-14 September 2019

Today the 2019 Melges 20 European Championship has begun on the race course of Malcesine: this is what represents in all aspects the most important regatta of the European season for the Melges 20 fleet.

A complicated day, for what concerns the wind, has allowed the completion of a single race that has seen all the "big" of the fleet immediately come into play occupying the highest spots of the ranking.

At the top of the provisional general classification stands the name of Russian veteran Nika of Vladimir Prosikhin with the American Morgan Reeser on tactics. In second place we find the compatriot and holder of the European title Russian Bogatyrs by Igor Rytov, the team to beat that precedes the first of the Italians, the vice world-champion of 2018 Brontolo Racing of Filippo Pacinotti (Manuel Weiller to tactics).

Behind the leading trio there is a lot of Italy, with the two Italian crews of Fremito d'Arja by Dario Levi and Caipirinha Jr. by Alessandro Agostinelli respectively in fourth and fifth position.

The Corinthian ranking currently sees the Italian team of Siderval (winner of the Melges World League European Division in its ranking) in the lead, entering the top ten, occupying ninth place and staying ahead of the Russians of Alex Team with a detachment (6 points) by Alexander Mikhaylik.

Tomorrow the regattas of the Melges 20 European Championship will resume with the warning signal set at 8.30
