Fremito d’Arja by Dario Levi is the “King of Scarlino”, Piero Poggi dominates the Melges 14 fleet

The Tuscan appointment with the Melges World League ended with a complete series of races, both for the Melges 20 and Melges 14 fleets.

At the end of the eight races held between Friday and today, the winner in the Melges 20 fleet is Dario Levi’s Fremito d’Arja, who put the seal on the victory only at the end of the very last race of the series, thanks to which he managed to pull off by one point Brontolo by Filippo Pacinotti, silver medal, and Russian Bogatyrs by Igor Rytov, third with 28 points.

At the end of the prize-giving ceremony, Dario Levi commented: “After the second event of 2020, I must say that the emotion of being back racing, after the difficult period we have all spent, is still strong and overwhelming. The event of Scarlino was incredible from a competitive point of view, with continuous changes in the ranking, in a very balanced fleet. My tactician Stefano Cherin surprised me with choices that I would never have personally made, and which proved successful. I am happy with the weekend spent here in Scarlino and I can’t wait to find myself on board with my crew-mates in Sardinia “.

In the Corinthian division, reserved for non-professional sailors, the victory goes to Siderval by Marco Giannini, followed by B.Lex by Benedetta Iovane and Mojito by Florian Rixner.

The Melges 14 fleet, at the very first event in the 2020 season, completed six regattas, the maximum scheduled by Notice of Race. Undisputed leader of the weekend is Piero Poggi, who already in the inaugural day had stood out with three consecutive bullets, followed on the podium by the very young Leopoldo Sirolli and Alessio Muciaccia.
