news - Fantastica is the team to beat!

Mar 28 2010

FANTASTICA starts with an impressive performance into the season!

Lerici, ITA, was the first venue in the European Melges 32 circuit and saw superb racing over the past weekend. Lanfranco Cirillo┬┤s team FANTASTICA showed early form and comfortably won the first event in the highly competitive class.

FANTASTICA won 4 out of 7 races over the weekend, made practically no mistakes and the flawless performance made it quite clear who is the team to beat this season! Tactician Michele Paoletti always placed the boat right and the crew sailed impressively cool for the whole regatta.

A big part in the victory had the two professionals Dede De Luca and Stefano Rizzi.

Second placed Mauro Mocchegiani, sailing Rush Diletta, also showed great speed and tactics and was able to fend off the 2009 Audi Melges 32 Series champion Carlo Alberini on Calvi Network who came third.

Congratulation FANTASTICA!
