news - Melges32 wins second consecutive event in Italian Audi Sailing Series

June 03 2013

 

Portoferraio Edition Audi Sailing Series
Portoferraio, Italy - What was to be a dramatic final day of racing in Portoferraio drew to a close with nothing. Due to the complete absence of wind, the very patient Race Committee was unable to start Race Six, the round that would have enabled teams to discard their worst score. Portoferraio is now complete with only five valid races on the scoreboard. Saturday's scores stand as final.
Again, it is with great congratulations to Lanfranco Cirillo aboard Fantastica and his tactician Michele Paoletti, with crew comprised of Daniele De Luca, Claudio Celon, Riamondo Tonelli, Eros Paghera, Enrico Verdinelli and Enrico Turrini as they are Portoferraio Audi Sailing Series winners. For Cirillo and team, this is their second win in a row as they also claimed victory in Porto Ercole about three weeks ago.
Following Cirillo's success in Portoferraio, he is now seated first overall in the 2013 Audi Sailing Series Ranking, ahead of Pozzi by one point. The two have placed a massive gap in points between themselves and Edoardo Lupi's Torpyone in third and Onorato fourth. Tomasini Grinover is now seated fifth overall.
Top Ten Results (Final - After Five Races)
1. Lanfranco Cirillo/Michele Paoletti, Fantastica, 27 points
2. Roberto Tomasini Grinover/Vasco Vascotto, Robertissima, 27
3. Vincenzo Onorato/Gabriele Benussi, Mascalzone Latino, 33
4. Andrea Pozzi/Lorenzo Bressani, Bombarda, 35
