Melges 32 World League 2020 Event 3 at Scarlino, Tuscany - Day 1

by Melges World League 24 Sep 2020 23:07 PDT 24-26 September 2020

South-Easterly breeze sets the pace for the first day of racing for the Melges 32 fleet in the Gulf of Follonica and the youngest crew in the fleet, Gordon Nickel and and Maximilian Stein's Homanit, immediately takes control of the ranking.

Confirming the very strong growth experienced since the beginning of the season, the young German crew today imposed its pace on the whole fleet thanks to tactical choices that were sometimes different from the rest of the fleet, but which proved to be successful, gaining the top of the ranking with partial scores of 3-1-4 and 8 points in total.

In second place, two points late, we find the newly elected World Champions aboard Martin Rentjes' Caipirinha, today authors of the first bullet of the Tuscan series (1-3-6 today's partials). Provisional bronze for the new entry in the Melges 32 fleet, Russian Bogatyrs by Igor Rytov, who after years of experience and successes in the Melges 20 Class, this time decided to test himself with the Melges 32, one of the most established and competitive one design on the international sailing scene.

Winner of the third and final regatta of the day is Dumbovit by Alessandro Lotto and Flavio Campana, who with partials scores of 8-7-1 occupies the fourth place of the general standings.

In an event that can count on a maximum of eight races to be completed by Saturday 26 September, the Race Committee chaired by Maria Torrijo will bring the fleet back into the water tomorrow at 10.00, trying to anticipate the arrival of a forecasted storm that should bring winds over 30 knots to the Tuscan coast.
