Mefisto Leads in Porto Cervo

As published by B-Plan

Porto Cervo - There is talk of racing in Porto Cervo, with the Audi Melges 20 fleet starting the long week of racing in the final stage of the Audi dedicated Melges 20 Sailing Series (until tomorrow) and the Audi Melges 32 World Championship (Tuesday is the warm-up).

Only one boat from the 14, Luke Domenici's Mephisto, tested the leader in the Audi Melges 20 Sailing Series in Porto Cervo. Behind him a group of old acquaintances of the Melges 32 class who are competing for the first time in the fast one-design Melges 20 fleet.

High ranking Fausto Rubbini on Thule was perfectly at ease on board the Audi Melges 20. Rubbini is not isolated, because the third and fourth place in the provisional overall standings are two other Melges 32 owners: Antonello Morina with Sei Tu (a pure rookie in the class and one of the protagonists of the season) and Savino Formentini's Bitipi.

Another newcomer is exceptional Carlo Alberini's Calvi Network (the winner of Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series 2009) who for now must be content with eighth place.

Benedetto Giallongo's Value Team, winner of all other races in the series so far, for once is not at the top of the group. Value Team is currently in fifth place.
