Victory for Bribon-Movistar

Sunday July 14th 2013, Author: James Boyd, Location: Italy

Spain's Marc de Antonio aboard Bribon-Movistar came out on top at the Audi Melges 32 Sailing Series racing in Torbole.

Never once over the course of three days and eight races did de Antonio, along with tactician Gustavo Martinez Doreste and crew members Victor Marino, Giorgio Tortarolo, Filippo La Mantia, Nicola Pilastro, Albero Viejo Puga, Javier Ibanez and Sofia Bertrand, let up on speed and the ability to be fastest around the track ensuring them the title.

Roberto Tomasini Grinover's Robertissima 1 and Jason Carroll aboard Argo maintained their positions as well overnight to finish the event respectively in second and third with Edoardo Lupi on Torpyone and Vincenzo Onorato's Mascalzone Latino rounding out the top final five.

With Lake Garda's 'wind factory' in place, two additional, final races were completed on Sunday with Lupi coming on super strong to win both heats, naming them 'Boat of the Day'. The first race of the day saw the advancement of Keisuke Suzuki on Swing finishing second with Carroll in third. Onorato took second place honors in the final race of the day followed by IM32CA Vice President Richard Gorannson on Inga From Sweden III HH.

In the overall Series rankings, Lanfranco Cirillo's Fantastica remains at the top, however the points gap has been closed ever so slightly. Andrea Pozzi's Bombarda is seated in second after four events with Lupi now in third.
