Today has been an intense day in the waters of Cala Galera for the Melges 20 fleet which today completed three more races at the 2020 World Championship, organized by Circolo Nautico e della Vela Argentario together with Melges 20 Class and Melges Europe, bringing to four the total number of races completed so far.

With 10 knots of steady breeze coming from 320°, Brontolo by Filippo Pacinotti is also today best boat of the day: the impeccable tactical choices by Manuel Weiller allow the crew of Pacinotti to close the regattas of today in first, second and then again first position respectively, consolidating the first place in the general ranking.

Sease by Franco Loro Piana also shines today: with 2-4-3 partial scores, the crew gains important points in the ranking, climbing up to second place, 9 points behind the leaders. Third place for Dario Levi and his Fremito d'Arja (6-5-2 partial scores).

In fourth place we find Raya by Matteo Marenghi Vaselli, winner of today's second regatta, who in turn leaves behind the multi-champions onboard Russian Bogatyrs, who close the top-five with 20 points in total.

Benedetta Iovane, in her first season aboard the Melges 20, leads the Corinthian ranking, occupying an excellent provisional seventh place in the overall standings.

The third day of racing of the Melges 20 World Championship will start tomorrow at 12.00; the Race Committee chaired by the Spanish PRO Maria Torrijo will be able to start a maximum of three races.
