Mefisto claims final regatta

Audi Melges 20 Sailing Series concludes in Porto Cervo

Sunday September 20th 2009, Author: Joy Dunigan, Location: United Kingdom
The final day of racing in Porto Cervo concluded with two additional heats and Luca Dominici on Mefisto winning the final event of the 2009 Audi Melges 20 Sailing Series. Taking the championship title was Benedetto Giallongo on Value Team. Giallongo’s success is attributed to winning the first four regattas - Lerici, Scarlino, Malcesine and Cagliari.

Dominici delivered a 1-4 punch to the fleet to win the event, hosted by the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda. Giallongo made a full recovery on Sunday with two third place finishes. This moved him up in the standings from yesterday’s sixth place slot to second overall. Fausto Rubbini on Thule, dropped to third after a disappointing tenth place finish in race one of the day, coming back for a bullet in race two.

The International Audi Melges 20 Class Association fully congratulates these two phenomenal competitors as well as the many who participated in 2009. A sincere thanks is extended to Audi, title sponsor of the series. The fleet looks to announce the 2010 Audi Sailing Series very, very soon.
